The Hollywood Art and Movie Awards is the new generation festival in Los Angeles. With thousands of festivals on many platforms, today as a filmmaker you are looking to the festival that will really bring you something that others don't.
Our mission at the HAMA is to go further than giving you an award.

WINNERS WILL GET :
- a sale representation agreement to sell your feature film internationally
- a licence agreement to have your short film distributed
- tips to get your film distributed
- a strategic feedback regarding your film for commercial use
- creation of your film profile on Imdb
- many discounts will be granted to other rewarding festivals, each one taylor-made for the category you submit to.

HISTORY
Back in 2015 was founded the Paris Art and Movie Awards. After running all over the globe to more than 40 all size and genre festivals, Matt Beurois made an old dream come true and founded his own film festival. In only 3 years, the "PAMA" attracted A-Lit names from Los Angeles and Paris, and screened dozens and dozens of films. The PAMA today is recognized as the leading independent film festival in Paris. It is the only festival to be held both in French and English. Its goal always has been to create a bridged, a connexion between Los Angele sand Paris, for filmmakers willing to jump both ways.
After the 3rd edition of the Paris Art and Movie Awards took place on the top of the Champs Elysées in Paris, right next to the Arc de Triomphe, it seemed it was time to take a new step forward and to create the Hollywood Art and Movie Awards.

GOALS
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.
