5th Asia Pacific Screen Forum, November 2023

The 5th Asia Pacific Screen Forum was held from 1-4 November 2023 at HOTA, Home of the Arts, Gold Coast.

Over four days local filmmakers, APSA Award nominees, and international delegates connected through a series of panels and presentations, roundtable discussions, networking events, workshops, and screenings. Attendees had the opportunity to learn from a range of speakers from across the region through a dynamic program that supports Australian film practitioners to engage with pertinent industry issues, connecting the national industry with the global conversation.

The Forum featured in-conversations, workshops, panel discussions, and intimate roundtables with a public program of screenings and Q&As. A unique program for the industry, encouraging relationship building networking opportunities, as well as cultural and knowledge exchange both from within Australia and across the Asia Pacific.


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.
