Each year, approximately 150 films participate in the APSA competition. In the past seven years more than 1400 films have entered in what is widely regarded as the region’s highest accolade in film.
“The number and calibre of entries we receive each year is confirmation that APSA has been embraced by the region’s film industry. Asia Pacific filmmakers needed an award of their own, to acclaim their work and take it to a global audience,” APSA Founding Chairman and Advisory Board Member, Des Power AM.
Official Submitting Organisations are enlisted to put forward two films to represent their country or territory. The APSA Nominations Council, Executive Chairman and Director of the Awards Competition are also empowered to invite films to ensure the broadest representation possible from the 70 countries and areas engaged by APSA.
