Welcome to Paris Cinema Awards!

The festival is committed to recognizing and promoting independent French and International projects. Our festival has created many opportunities for writers, directors, actors, cinematographers, editors, composers and all artists working in media.

Screening is not mandatory in various categories of the monthly festival. Film projects and artists can compete through private screening to jury members and programmers who vote for the best in each category. The award winners of the month are further considered for the lineup of the annual festival.
All the award winners can request for a bonus to promote, feature, market and screen film projects through Paris Cinema Awards. The winners of each edition can also request for certificates and laurels, and wil be promoted through social media and various platforms connected to our festival.
All award winning films will be screened in our biggest annual event. All tickets for this live screening will be complimentary for filmmakers and for the audience.

    Review for 'She's An Instagram Model' by Keith Orlando Harris. Thank you to the Paris Cinema Awards for granting my music video with the Best Editor Award. The music video has now won 19 awards in total from Best Music Video, Best Producer, Best Music Video Actress and has won awards in Hollywood, London, Rome, Istanbul, Stockholm and Singapore. To round it off with a Best Editor award gives me a win in Paris so ;) See you in Paris

    We had a great experience here. Communication was wonderful and our film won a best actress award. Iโ€™m looking forward to submitting to them again in the future with additional films. I highly recommend!
