The Paris Play Film Festival was created in 2016. Its first edition took place in June 2016, in the historical heart of Paris: the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood.

The second edition happened in July 2017 with films premiering at the Balzac movie theater on the Champs-Elysées.

The 2018 edition took place in June 2018 at the legendary Café de Paris.

The 2019 edition was on one of the biggest screens of Paris, at the Majestic Bastille, on the historical Place de la Bastille, in September 2019.

In 2020 will opted for multiple digital editions to support as many filmmakers as possible, and our adjustments have been rewarded with more participating filmmakers and much, much more viewers!

In 2022 we are gradually coming back to normal, making the best of the digital and in person opportunities at the same time!

“Great team! Great festival! Thanks for having me to be part of it. All my best wishes!”
