The Seen and Unseen (Sekala Niskala)

Three (3) films from the Republic of Indonesia have scored a total of three nominations in the 11th Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA).

The nominations for the 11th Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) were announced last week. APSA is the region’s highest accolade in film, celebrating cinematic excellence and nominations were announced in the seven narrative feature categories by Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, together with former APSA International Jury President Lord David Puttnam, member of the APSA 2017 Nominations Council Kiki Fung and Chair of APSA and its Academy, Michael Hawkins.

Popular actress Cut Mini is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress for her role in Athirah (Indonesia).

Mouly Surya is nominated for Achievement in Directing for Marlina si Pembunuh dalam Empat Babak (Indonesia, France, Malaysia, Thailand)

Sekala Niskala (Indonesia, Netherlands, Australia, Qatar) is nominated for Best Youth Feature Film, produced by Gita FARA, Kamila Andini, Ifa Isfansyah and directed by Kamila Andini

41 films from 25 countries and areas of the Asia Pacific region have received nominations in 2017, including the first nomination for a film from Bhutan. Winners will be announced at the 11th APSA ceremony on November 23, where they will be presented with a unique and exquisite handmade APSA award vessel made by Brisbane-based internationally awarded glass artist Joanna Bone.

Of the Best Feature Film nominees, Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said “These five films tell unique stories from Australia, China, Iran, Israel and Russia, each representing the incredible diversity and high calibre of filmmaking from the Asia Pacific region. This is a significant opportunity for our city to host some of the world’s most respected names in film and a great chance for our local and national film industry to forge new connections with the region. The Asia Pacific Screen Awards helps to elevate Brisbane’s position as a cultural hub and is a testament to our role as a leader in the region.”

Chair of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards and its Academy Michael Hawkins said, ”As APSA forges into its 11th year, it is significant to note that amongst the nominees there are not only a great number of newer filmmakers, but also a large number of filmmakers who are already a part of the growing Asia Pacific Screen Academy, which was created precisely to encompass and connect the large body of talented filmmakers in the Asia Pacific Region. Significantly, this year there are APSA Academy members nominated across almost all categories, and we look forward to welcoming all of the nominees both to Brisbane as well as into the growing Academy”.

The Asia Pacific Screen Awards, based in Brisbane, are supported by Brisbane City Council and managed by its economic development board, Brisbane Marketing. APSA has the privilege of a unique collaboration with Paris-based UNESCO and FIAPF-International Federation of Film Producers Associations, and recognises and promotes cinematic excellence and cultural diversity of the world’s fastest growing film region: comprising 70 countries and areas, 4.5 billion people, and is responsible for half of the world’s film output.

Nominees and Jury members are inducted into the Asia Pacific Screen Academy, making them eligible to apply for the 2017 MPA APSA Academy Film Fund. The Fund was created to support, at script stage, new feature film projects originated by APSA Academy members and their colleagues across Asia Pacific. The fund awards four development grants of US$25,000 annually, and is wholly supported by the MPA (Motion Picture Association).

APSA and its Academy are committed to its ongoing collaborations with UNESCO, FIAPF, the European Film Academy (EFA), the Motion Picture Association (MPA), NETPAC (the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema), the Asia Pacific Screen Lab (APSL) and Griffith Film School.

Para pemenang akan diumumkan di dalam upacara pada tanggal 23 November, dan mereka akan dianugerahkan piala APSA buatan tangan yang unik dan indah, yang dibuat oleh seniman gelas Brisbane yang telah mendapatkan penghargaan internasional.

Mengenai penerima nominasi Film Fitur Terbaik, Walikota Brisbane, Lord Mayor Graham Quirk mengatakan “Kelima film ini menceritakan kisah unik dari Australia, Tiongkok, Iran, Israel dan Rusia. Masing-masing mewakili keragaman yang mengagumkan dan kaliber pembuatan film yang tinggi di wilayah Asia Pasifik. Ini adalah peluang besar bagi kota kita untuk menjadi tuan rumah bagi tokoh-tokoh perfileman dunia yang paling dihormati dan kesempatan besar bagi industri film lokal dan nasional kita untuk menempa koneksi baru untuk wilayah ini. Asia Pacific Screen Awards membantu mengangkat posisi Brisbane sebagai pusat budaya dan merupakan bukti peranan kita sebagai pemuka di wilayah ini.”

Ketua Asia Pacific Screen Awards dan Akademinya Michael Hawkins mengatakan, “Sembari APSA memasuki tahun ke-11, penting dicatat bahwa di antara penerima nominasi bukan hanya ada sejumlah besar pembuat film yang baru, tetapi juga banyak pembuat film yang telah merupakan bagian dari Asia Pacific Screen Academy yang semakin berkembang, yang didirikan persis untuk menjaring dan menghubungkan para pembuat film berbakat di Wilayah Asia Pasifik. Yang penting juga, tahun ini ada anggota-anggota APSA Academy yang dinominasikan di hampir semua kategori, dan kami dengan senang hati menyambut kedatangan semua penerima nominasi di Brisbane dan juga Akademi yang bertambah besar ini.”

Asia Pacific Screen Awards, yang berbasis di Brisbane, didukung oleh Dewan Kota Brisbane dan dikelola oleh dewan pengembangan ekonominya, Brisbane Marketing. APSA beruntung dapat bekerjasama secara unik dengan UNESCO yang berbasis di Paris dan FIAPF-Federasi Internasional untuk Ikatan Para Produser, serta mengakui dan mendorong keunggulan sinematik dan keragaman budaya di wilayah pertumbuhan film tercepat di dunia: mencakup 70 negara dan wilayah, 4,5 milyar orang, dan bertanggung jawab atas separoh produksi film dunia.

Para penerima nominasi dan anggota Juri dilantik ke dalam Asia Pacific Screen Academy, sehingga mereka dapat mengajukan permohonan untuk Dana Film MPA APSA Academy 2017. Dana ini dibuat untuk mendukung, pada tahap naskah, proyek film fitur baru yang dicetuskan oleh anggota-anggota APSA Academy dan para rekan mereka di seluruh wilayah Asia Pasifik. Dana sebesar US$25,000 dihibahkan kepada empat pengembangan per tahun, dan sepenuhnya didukung oleh MPA (Motion Picture Association).

APSA dan Akademinya memiliki komitmen berkelanjutan untuk bekerja sama dengan UNESCO, FIAPF, European Film Academy (EFA), Motion Picture Association (MPA), NETPAC (Jejaring untuk Mendukung Sinema Asia), Asia Pacific Screen Lab (APSL) dan Griffith Film School.
