Film in the hands of a great filmmaker has the power to change lives; the power to bridge cultural divides; the courage to explore and tell our stories; to inform and entertain; to deliver better understanding into hearts and minds.
Thousands of films from Asia Pacific countries and areas have competed in the APSAs. Films which clearly demonstrate a rich slate of diversity – each telling its own story, in its own way, from its country of origin. That is what the Asia Pacific Screen Awards respect and acclaim.
The 2020 Asia Pacific Screen Awards Presentation saw the announcement of two major awards, the FIAPF Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film and the APSA Young Cinema Award acknowledging the cinematic excellence of an emerging filmmaker.
The four recipients of the MPA APSA Academy Film Fund, a US $25,000 script development grant, were announced.
The full competition will open in 2021 for films that premiered in 2020 and 2021.
