Mission Statement


The Paris Art and Movie Awards is the leading film festival event in Paris, France. It celebrated 10 years in 2020.

The PAMA is an established international event, recognized by industry players in the fields of movies and music, with major partnerships in media, arts and education areas.

Our primary objective is to encourage and support artists and filmmakers so they build confidence and stack up the will to make another film.

We screen the best of the current generation of new filmmakers, from all over the world. We value the directors, but also the producers, cast and crew members: each and every one of us who make it possible to exist in the production chain.

Our wide range of artistic and technical award offers specific recognition to every major film position, and we’re adding categories every year to broaden representation.

Our activities, in person and digital, aim to provide filmmakers and artists with an international platform with an audience.

Our programs and actions help independent artists in all the ways possible to share, show, promote their films, music, art with a large number of screenings and a rich palette of events including networkings, panels, talks, talk shows, red carpet events, press coverage, award ceremony, masterclasses, workshops, one-to-one interviews…

SUPPORT and PROMOTE artists in the fields of movies and music.

By participating in the PAMA we hope you will gather the inspiration, recognition, envy, stamina, and network to keep creative.
