A further initiative of the APSA Academy in association with Griffith University, Griffith Film School and NETPAC, is the year-long immersive development program, the Asia Pacific Screen Lab.
This program is available to emerging feature filmmakers from across the Asia Pacific, who have made at least one feature film within the frame of their national cinema and are now ready for a larger international framework.
Participants will receive a year-long individual consultation to further their project, with mentors chosen from the APSA Academy. The screen lab will end with a pitch in front of a high-profile industry jury of sales agents, producers and festival programmers.
For more information on the program and to submit your project, visit the Griffith Film School website.
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.
