In 2018, Premios Platino de Cine Iberoamericano (The Platino Awards) and the Asia Pacific Screen Academy (APSA) announced an alliance between the two organisations.
The Platino Awards were created in 2014 at the initiative of EGEDA (Entity of Management of Rights of Audiovisual Producers) with FIPCA (Ibero-American Federation of Cinematographic and Audiovisual Producers) and with the support of the Ibero-American Film Academies, Latin Artist and Aisge Foundation.
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.
