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.

Our film festival works constantly. We will publish the results 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘 𝐌𝐎𝐍𝐓𝐇 on our Instagram Official Account! The festival has the following structure:
1. The selection of films: we see all submitted films
2. Selected films will reveive the status “Official Selection“ of the month edition.
3. We will announce the finalists who are nominated for a month prize.
4. The jury selects winners. In the main categories the jury awards: Best Film, Second Place, Third Place and special prices. In the special and individual categories the jury awards: The Best Prize and special prices.

We know the importance of having a full house cinema. This is why we are committed to promoting filmmaker’s projects. We consider each event an opportunity for networking with other artists and people from the industry.

    BE CAREFUL!!! Like other comments I'm pretty sure this is a fake festival. Their website is now a 'wix' page and all of the content that was on the Paris Cinema Awards website of Dec 2021 when I entered has been removed. I'm a "winner" in the Best Director category. I have received a PDF with "winner" on it but not ONE email has been answered to clarify information about the live screenings advertised on their website at time of entry. FilmFreeway have copied them into emails to contact me, nothing has happened.
    All of the photos from the live screenings were removed (probably because they were false and misleading i.e photos of a a ballet opening the festival) and information about the annual festival date was scheduled for August 27th 2022. And have filmmakers heard anything? Can they honour the promises they made to filmmakers when they took our money? I have found that this festival to be misleading and here is some information from the Film Freeway website: "False Information / Manipulated PhotosFilmFreeway is designed to give submitters accurate information about festivals and what submitters can expect to experience at the festivals. Any false, inaccurate, misleading or outdated information creates confusion among submitters and can diminish their experience with FilmFreeway.FilmFreeway has a zero tolerance policy for false information. If you include any false or blatantly misleading information in your festival's listing (including but not limited to organizer names, venue information, photos, festival history, sponsors, and prizes) your festival and all related accounts will be immediately and permanently banned from the site". I believe it's a fraud, I want my film withdrawn and a refund.
