The Hollywood Art and Movie Awards, (HAMA) is a festival made by filmmakers, for filmmakers.

It is managed by Matt Beurois (executive producer, producer and director) and Auregan (producer, scriptwriter, composer).

The HAMA the independent filmmakers to the same level than the already established filmmakers. Fame is not required to get into the HAMA, we review all the movies we receive to create a selection with competition.

Our parent organisation is the Paris Art and Movie Awards, the largest independent film festival in Paris. We welcomed Sharon Stone in June 2018 to our 8th edition in Paris.

The HAMA’s mission is to push for the same level of quality here in Los Angeles, with a French touch.
