A further initiative of the APSA Academy in association with Griffith University, Griffith Film School and NETPAC, is the year-long immersive development program, the Asia Pacific Screen Lab.

This program is available to emerging feature filmmakers from across the Asia Pacific, who have made at least one feature film within the frame of their national cinema and are now ready for a larger international framework.

Participants will receive a year-long individual consultation to further their project, with mentors chosen from the APSA Academy. The screen lab will end with a pitch in front of a high-profile industry jury of sales agents, producers and festival programmers.
For more information on the program and to submit your project, visit the Griffith Film School website.
