Connecting Early Career Filmmakers


For emerging and early career filmmakers, connecting with likeminded collaborators is crucial. With first and second-time directors representing over half of the APSA nominated films this year, we invite local filmmakers to join these emerging voices in sharing ideas, stories, filmmaking processes and experiences.

Featuring addresses from the winner of 2018 APSA Young Cinema Award and Asia Pacific Screen Lab participant Yeo Siew Hua (Singapore), and nominated filmmakers Lê Bảo (Vietnam), and Đong Thị Phương Thảo (Vietnam).

This is an online network event.

The Asia Pacific Screen Academy expresses its respect for and acknowledgement of the South East Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of country, including the custodial communities on whose land works are created and celebrated by the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. We acknowledge the continuing connection to land, waters and communities. We also pay our respects to Elders, past and emerging. We recognise the integral role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and First Nations peoples continue to play in storytelling and celebration spaces.
