Welcome to Paris Cinema Awards!

Paris Cinema Awards is going to become one of the Most Popular festival out of more than 15.000 film festivals.

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.

    Communication was a bit delayed. I just assume for me it’s because they’re busy and there is a huge time difference. Overall I am glad that I submitted to this festival. It was a great experience and I will absolutely advise everyone to submit to this festival.

    Great festival. They could do a better communication on social media, but apart from that, it's great.
    Received my certificates more than a week after. It's ok, but would have been nice to know.
