Each year, the Asia Pacific Screen Awards invites countries from the region to submit their best films for competition. The selection and submission of these films is facilitated by an Official Submitting Organisation. This may be a single organisation, committee or consulting member. Organisations are selected based on mutual aims and representation of the interests of their national film industry.
Below is a list of the participating Official Submitting Organisations for the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. Please note, new organisations may be added to the list as their participation is confirmed. Each organisation is eligible to submit a limited number of entries annually and selection and submission timelines may vary between organisations.
