Asia Pacific Screen Lab - Griffith Film School

Aditya Sunday August 20, 2017

Herman Van Eyken, Chair of the CILECT Asia Pacific Association, Philip Cheah, Advisor to NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asia Pacific Cinema), Ki Yong Park (Founder Asian Film Academy), and and Anne Demy-Geroe (Vice-President NETPAC), with the support of NETPAC, the Sun Foundation, Temenggong Artists in Residence and the Asia Pacific Screen Academy have worked assiduously since 2010 towards the development of the Asia Pacific Screen Laboratory (APSL).

A key strategy in this development is to take advantage of the Asian Pacific screen professionals that gather each year in Brisbane for the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA). At its core the APSLab, now in its third year, develops a vehicle for enabling film co-productions by early career feature filmmakers from across the Asia Pacific, typically those who have made at least one feature film within the frame of their particular national cinema and are now ready for a larger framework. Mentors are sourced from the Asia Pacific Screen Academy.
