Attending the Asia Pacific YAA, student jury members will get the chance to critically view these films in a closed screening and determine this year’s winner – and they’ll also get a chance to speak directly to the filmmakers!
The Asia Pacific Young Audience Awards are a partnership between ATOMQld and the Asia Pacific Screen Academy, and provide students with the opportunity to engage with incredible films they might never have the opportunity to see again. Students view the three nominated films, determine the winner through facilitated critical discussions, and at the end of the day, receive an EXCLUSIVE opportunity to speak with the filmmakers themselves!
This year, venues in Ipswich and Rockhampton join Brisbane and Gympie to host APYAA juries!! The event will occur on Saturday 9 September.
The event is open to Media Arts and FTVNM high school students 15 years and over, and is a great opportunity for students engage with like-minded cinephiles.
