The Asia Pacific Screen Academy presents annually the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) and the Asia Pacific Screen Forum together with APSA Academy initiatives including the MPA APSA Academy Film Fund throughout the year.
APSA collaborates with UNESCO to promote a greater understanding of the significance of all cultures in our world.
APSA shares a common interest of Asia Pacific film producers on behalf of FIAPF–International Federation of Film Producers Associations in promoting their films to a global audience.
APSA enjoys major sponsorship from Gold Coast City Council, Screen Queensland, Griffith Film School, Motion Picture Association – Asia Pacific and Netflix.
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.
