A total of 39 films from 21 Asia-Pacific countries and areas are vying for the region’s most prestigious accolades in film this year.

"I am extremely impressed by the overall quality and scope of the films from the Asia Pacific region that were in the running for this year’s awards. I believe this year will prove to be the highest level of competition for APSA since its inauguration in 2007," said Hong-Joon Kim, Chair of the International Nominations Council.
