The Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) is an international cultural initiative of the Brisbane City Council, Australia, through Brisbane Marketing, to honour and promote the films, actors, directors, and cultures of Asia-Pacific to a global audience and to realise the objectives of UNESCO to promote and preserve the respective cultures through the influential medium of film. Staged for the first time in 2007, APSA collaborates with UNESCO and FIAPF-International Federation of Film Producers Associations. Winners are determined by an international jury and films are judged on cinematic excellence and the way in which they attest to their cultural origins. APSA takes the works of filmmakers across more than 70 countries and areas in the Asia-Pacific region to new international audiences.

Nominees are automatically inducted into The Academy of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, a growing world-class body of Asia-Pacific filmmakers. Australian screen legend, Jack Thompson AM, is the President of The Academy, and Vice Patron was Alicia Mayer Beverley] who submitted her resignation April, 2012.

The eighth annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards will be held in Brisbane on 11 December 2014. The International Jury President is award-winning Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi.
