The Paris Art and Movie Awards created the Hollywood Art and Movie Awards in 2017, in order to keep building an international network profiting independent filmmakers.
The 1st call for films opened in 2017, and the first edition took place in January 2018 at the French Alliance of Pasadena, as well as in the Aurora Theater in Long Beach, and at the Colorado Studio in Los Angeles.
The second edition took place in January 2019, in North Hollywood.
The third edition will take place in Hollywood, Los Angeles by the end of January 2020.
The call for entries is accepting submissions up until Dec 20, 2019.
The Hollywood Art and Movie Awards is the best exemple of the new generation festival in Los Angeles working every day to make a difference and keep a real purpose, as a festival serving filmmakers.
With thousands of festivals on many platforms, as a filmmaker today you are looking for the few events that will really bring you something that others don’t.
Our mission at the HAMA is to go further than giving you an award.
Both festival act as brother-events, with effective connexions that will allow filmmakers from Los Angeles to enjoy a safe festival event in Paris, and filmmakers from Paris to make the jump to the City of Angels with their film.
Each festival has its own programming team and its own Judges. But they operate as a stepping stone to one another. For example the Hollywood Art and Movie Awards short film winners (International and French) will be granted a 100% free submission to the Paris Art and Movie Awards.
You can still submit to the 3rd Hollywood Art and Movie Awards on FilmFreeway.
