Asia Pacific’s highest accolade in film

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.

Over the years, more than 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.

Films are judged on cinematic excellence and the way in which they attest to their cultural origins.
