Asia Pacific Screen Awards

Tangshan dadizheng (Aftershock), from the People’s Republic of China, has won the Best Feature Film Award at the 4th annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA), announced this evening at a stunning ceremony on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. Chinese actor Chen Daoming received the Best Performance by an Actor award for the same film, which is the highest grossing domestic film of all time at the Chinese box office.

President of the International Jury for APSA 2010, Academy-Award winning producer Lord David Puttnam, said: “The sheer variety of films and staggeringly good performances made our task very difficult indeed, in every category.

“Ultimately Aftershock won best film because, in my own view, it has everything. It is as good a ‘big’ movie as any I’ve seen from Hollywood in years. It doesn’t disappoint at any level. It has already attracted a huge audience and it has every chance of going on to capture a bigger international audience. It is incredibly moving and, at the same time, it is really an extraordinarily restrained film…and it ends beautifully.”

The APSAs were attended by more than 550 filmmakers and special guests from across the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and North America.

Best Achievement for Directing was awarded to Lee Chang-dong from the Republic of Korea for Shi (Poetry), Yun Jung-hee returned to film after an absence of more than 15 years to play the leading role.with the Best Performance by an Actress award going to the star of the film,Yun Jung-hee.

Lee Chang-dong is now a three time APSA winner. In 2007, he accepted the Award for Best Feature Film in the inaugural Awards for Miryang (Secret Sunshine) and in 2009, for the Best Children’s Feature Film, A Brand New Life (Ya Haeng Ja).

The APSA International Jury also decided, this year, to present two Jury Grand Prizes – to Japanese actress Shinobu Terajima for her astonishing performance in the film Caterpillar (which was nominated for Best Screenplay) and to Israeli writer/director Samuel Moaz for Levanon (Lebanon).

Samuel Moaz also won the Award for Best Screenplay for Levanon (Lebanon).

Digari (The Other) from the Islamic Republic of Iran was awarded Best Children’s Feature Film. The Best Animated Feature Film award went to Piercing I, from the People’s Republic of China, while the Chinese/Canadian co-production The Last Train Home won Best Documentary Feature Film.

Achievement in Cinematography was awarded to Sudhir Palsane for Vihir (The Well) from India
Bal (Honey), from Turkey, directed and produced by Semih Kaplano?lu, received the UNESCO Award, determined by the International Jury and awarded for outstanding contribution to the promotion and preservation of cultural diversity through film.

Australian actor Tony Barry received a High Commendation from the International Jury for his performance in the New Zealand film Home By Christmas. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (Australia) received a High Commendation for Outstanding Technology and Special Effects.

Christine Hakim, the legendary Indonesian actress turned producer, was on the Gold Coast to receive the FIAPF Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film.

Winners in the fourth annual APSAs were determined by an International Jury headed by Academy Award-winning producer Lord David Puttnam. These awards, an initiative of the Queensland Government, Australia in unique collaboration with UNESCO and FIAPF-International Federation of Film Producers Associations – acclaim films from 70 countries and areas; one third of the earth; and half the world’s film output. Films are judged on cinematic excellence and the way in which they attest to their cultural origins. A total of 239 films were entered in the competition by Official Submitting Organisations from the region and by invitation from the APSA Nominations Council and APSA Chairman.

Also announced at this evening’s ceremony were the first grants to be offered by the MPA APSA Academy Film Fund, a new initiative of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) and the Motion Picture Association (MPA) which is available exclusively to APSA Academy members.
