    Des and Michael will talk about the founding and growth of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards and how this Queensland-based initiative has been a winner for Australia and the wider region. Both men are key architects of this remarkable success story. Des unveiled the original APSA concept in 2003 and travelled the word to make it a reality.

Established in 2007 with a permanent home in Brisbane, the Asia Pacific Screen Awards honour cinematic excellence from 70 countries and areas in the region, and recognise filmmaking that best reflects its cultural origins. APSA is an international cultural program supported by Brisbane City Council and managed by Brisbane Marketing. It is endorsed by foundation partners Paris-based UNESCO and FIAPF-International Federation of Film Producers Associations. The awards ceremony is an exclusive presentation unique to Brisbane and is streamed globally via live webcast.
