Selection committee


The Paris Art and Movie Awards is the biggest independent film festival in Paris, and the only one providing a continuous support to the upcoming filmmakers.

Our selection process follows 3 major steps :

1) Submission

2) Selection committee

3) Jury


The SUBMISSON is up to the filmmaker. You can use the platformof your choice, all listed on this page.

We do not accept direct link submissions, but if you have a question, feel free to reach out.


Our SELECTION COMMITTEE reviews all the films we receive.

Yes, we do watch all the films, yes, it takes a lot of time, but that’s our commitment as a festival.

For the 2018 edition, our selection committee is composed by filmmakers, artists, digital explorers, cast and crew people, such as :

Arnaud Devineau – editor, composer (announced January 2018)

Sarah Avena – digital consultant, journalist (announced January 2018)

Olivier Nelli – director (announced January 2018)

Preciado Rodriguez – actor (announced February 2018)

Marianne Bouin – journalist (announced March 2018)

The sooner you submit, the more time we have to enjoy your work.



Our Judges have two ways to watch the films : online, and on the big screen. Most of the time, they use both options and only cast their votes to the last minute.

Some of the 2018 Judges are already announced. You can check our previous Judges here : 2015, 2016, and 2017.
