The Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) is an international cultural initiative of the Brisbane City Council, Australia, to honor and promote the films, actors, directors, and cultures of the Asia-Pacific region to a global audience and to realize 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 Asia Pacific Screen Academy, a growing world-class body of Asia-Pacific filmmakers. Australian screen legend, Jack Thompson AM, is the President of the Academy.

The eighth annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards was held in Brisbane on 11 December 2014. The International Jury that determined the winners was led by award-winning Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (jury president), with Anthony Chen, Hiam Abbass, Lu Yue, Maciej Stuhr, and Rajit Kapur as the other jury members.[2] Past International Jury members include Shyam Benegal, Malini Fonseka, Nansun Shi, Lord David Puttnam, Sergey Dvortsevoy, Salman Aristo, Gina Kim, Samuel Maoz, Kaori Momoi, Tahmineh Milani, Jan Chapman, Sasson Gabai, Tian Zhuangzhuang, Aparna Sen, Bruce Beresford, Huang Jianxin, Shabana Azmi and Jafar Panahi.
