In 2011, The European Film Academy (EFA) and the Asia Pacific Screen Academy (APSA) announced an alliance between the two organisations.
Founded in 1988, the European Film Academy now unites more than 3,200 European film professionals with the common aim of promoting Europe’s film culture.
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.
