Talent Factory event in Los Angeles – 2017 May 5th
After creating the Paris Art and Movie Awards in 2015, festival founder Matt Beurois wanted to create the tools to keep helping filmmakers and help them jumping over the Ocean and try their shot in Los Angeles.
In that perspective, he created the Talent Factory platform : a hub managing several monthly and regular contests in the fields of movies, music video, scripts, storyboards and music itself.
Talent Factory offers monthly events, and an annual rendez-vous with many screenings, QnA, award give-away and networking.
The inaugural event took place at the Echo Park Film Center, right on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, this May 5 (cinco de Mayo).
Matt Beurois hosted the event, alongside with co-managing partner Auregan, French Judge Dorian Masson, and USA Judge Nicolas Wendl.


Movie Theater LE BALZAC – 2017 May 3rd
The 2017 Festival will take place at the BALZAC movie theater in Paris.

Alumni Network – 2017 January 22nd

2017 will be the 3rd edition of the PAMA. We already had dozens of filmmakers attending the festival, more than a thousand films submitted,
and almost a hundred films that screened.
The very first purpose of the festival was, and remains : to help and support independent filmmakers, cast and crew to get noticed, and to have their work truly awarded.
Making films is a long way. Making it a career takes a life.
Our goal is to support artists climbing to the next step.
To move forward this objective, we launch THE ALUMNI NETWORK, an international link between each and every people connected together thanks to the festival.
Check more on the Facebook group.

The Paris Art and Movie Awards international film festival proudly partners with several charities :

La Voix de l’Enfant / Child’s Voice (FRANCE)

The American Legion (USA and FRANCE)

We also support the Time’s Up movement.



– « Child Voice« , the French largest chartity protecting kids in France (federation « La Voix de l’Enfant »). This federation gathers many societies and associations that help children, defend them in courts, protect their rights, give them a voice, offer education and protection.

Because they are in need of a home, because of family issues, sometimes violence or simply loneliness or lack of luck… « Child Voice » give the kids a voice to defend themselves, from the streets to the courts, and give the opportunities to enhance their chances in life.

The Paris Art and Movie Awards opens several of its screenings to the kids, for free of course. We also run special screenings and meetings during the festival, for the filmakers to talk and explain movies to the kids, from 7 to 29.

« We are proud to support La Voix de l’Enfant since the festival’s inception. Movies are about freedom, knowledge, entertainment, and fun. We often consider these as basic everyday stuff. For some people, they are not. With our actions, we want to support the kids, and just have them enjoy and discover what movies are about and for. »

Matt Beurois, festival founder and Ceo.



« Thanks to our activities in Los Angeles, we’ve been lucky to meet some extraodinary people. In here in the USA, being a veteran means a lot. It has its perks, and its challenges. From France, we often don’t really understand the meaning of « service« , it is a different culture. This year, starting in 2018, we are happy today to start working with the American Legion, to share our experiences, and be somehow helpful to those who gave some, or gave all. »

Matt Beurois

The 2018 edition of the Paris Art and Movie Awards will include a special screening with and for the Veterans. This will bring a new audience to the screenings, and will also bring the screenings to new places, being a great opportunity for the filmmakers.

The Paris Post is post number one because it’s been the very first created after World War II. Once again, we are proud and humbled to team with people who made history, to a human level, and more.

We also are in connexion with Post 43 (Hollywood), and soon with Post 150 (Burbank).


Our winter festival, the Hollywood Art and Movie Awards, raised awareness to the Time’s Up movement, inviting people to donate directely to their fund.

We are very cautious, each year with the PAMA and the HAMA, to select judges from very different backgrounds, origins, cultures, with various life and work experiences, including women and men.

We will continue to work this way in 2018 and after that.

La 3ème édition du Festival a eu lieu le 3 juillet 2017, à Paris.

Le Paris Art and Movie Awards est un festival de cinéma indépendant, qui tiendra sa 3ème édition à Paris le 3 juillet, au cinéma Le Balzac.

Longs et courts métrages, films d’animation, de danse, expérimentaux… Le festival accueille un large éventail de talents, venus du monde entier.

Après Mark Dacascos l’an dernier (Le Pacte des Loups, Crying Freeman, Only The Strong), c’est l’actrice Mélanie Doutey (César du meilleur espoir féminin pour Le Frère du Guerrier, vue dans La French, RTT…) qui préside cette année un jury de 13 personnalités du cinéma, de l’image, du marketing et des nouveaux médias.

A l’affiche cette année, Hugo Becker (Gossip Girls, Chefs) nominé dans la catégorie meilleur acteur; Anna Mouglalis, nommée dans la catégorie meilleure comédienne; Tetsuo Nagata (La Vie en Rose, MicMacs à Tire Larigot, Splice…) nominé dans la catégorie meilleur directeur de la photographie, Jean-Paul Fresnay, récompensé au festival d’Austin et nominé au PAMA dans la catégorie meilleur clip, ou encore Jonathan Kingston Gameiro (crédité sur Star Wars: Episode VIII, Doctor Strange, Jason Bourne) qui présente son court-métrage True Heart, multi-nominé au PAMA cette année.

La programmation comprend également un film d’animation traitant de la situation opposant les Sioux de Standing Rock au gouvernement américain, un court-métrage français dans lequel Anna Mouglalis interprète Niki de Saint Phalle, et pour la première fois depuis la création du festival, un film Iranien (Icky) est sélectionné en compétition officielle dans la catégorie meilleur film d’animation, malgré la censure artistique et économique frappant dans ce pays depuis plusieurs années.

Dans les nouveaux prix cette année, le PAMA décernera le trophée de la meilleure musique de film, le prix du meilleur monteur, et le prix de la meilleure photo d’art.

Le meilleur réalisateur de l’année repartira avec le fameux trophée signature du festival, une tour Eiffel de bronze, les autres prix comprenant des plaques de cristal gravées au laser à l’effigie de Brigitte Bardot (après Audrey Hepburn l’an dernier).

Le festival a également tissé de nombreux partenariats avec Etoile Casting, Final Draft et Book.fr pour offrir de nombreux prix en nature aux lauréats et aux artistes sélectionnés en compétition.
