Condolences to Kyoto Animation Studio

On behalf of myself, the entire Asia Pacific Screen Awards team and I know I speak for all Academy Members, I would like to extend my deep condolences to Kyoto Animation Studio and the entire Japanese Industry in this difficult time. We were shocked and devastated to hear of the tragedy that unfolded at Kyoto Animation Studio and the terrible loss that has occurred.

Our hearts and thoughts are with all during this time.

We acknowledge the continuing connection to land, waters and communities. We also pay our respects to Elders, past and emerging.
