Call for Entry: APSA Academy Film Fund for Script Development

By NewsDesk • Published on July 18, 2012

The Motion Picture Academy APSA (Asia Pacific Screen Awards) Academy Film Fund is inviting entries for Script Development Fund.

This $100,000 development fund provides four $25,000 grants each year for script development and is wholly supported by the Motion Picture Association (MPA).

Submissions are until 19 October 2012.

To be eligible, a member of the APSA Academy must be attached to the project in one of the following roles: Executive Producer, Producer, Director, Screenwriter, Actor, Actress or Cinematographer. Projects are assessed on the same criteria that apply to films in the APSA competition – films that best reflect their cultural origins, demonstrate cinematic excellence and are deemed Asia Pacific in origin.

The film fund is intended to stimulate production in the region, particularly at the development phase.

In April 2012, APSA and the MPA announced the continuation of the fund, which was established in 2010. Applications will be assessed by a panel in November and recipients will be announced at the sixth annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards ceremony on 23 November.

Indian filmmaker Pryas Gupta received development funding for his project The Cricket Tree.

The Submission Form will require the applicant to supply a synopsis, treatment and filmography/biography of attached creatives.
