APSA (Asia Pacific Screen Awards)
Film in the hands of a great filmmaker has the power to change lives; the power to bridge cultural divides; the courage to explore and tell our stories; to inform and entertain; to deliver better understanding into hearts and minds.
Thousands of films from Asia Pacific countries and areas have competed in the APSAs. Films which clearly demonstrate a rich slate of diversity – each telling its own story, in its own way, from its country of origin. That is what the Asia Pacific Screen Awards respect and acclaim.
The Asia Pacific Screen Awards’ Academy was formed in 2008 and comprises all APSA nominees, winners, jurors, International Nominations Council members, Selection Panellists and special invitees. They number more than 1,000 of the world’s most successful and acclaimed film experts and practitioners including winners of the Palme d’Or, the Golden Bear, the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film and the Academy Award® for Best Picture.
