Hollywood’s leading industry group and an Australian film awards event have joined to offer grants for Asian filmmakers worth $100,000.
The Motion Picture Association Asia Pacific is an arm of the Motion Picture Association of America. It said in a statement late Saturday that it will offer four $25,000 grants a year, along with the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, or APSA, an annual prize ceremony run by the Queensland state government.
The grants are open to APSA nominees, winners and jury members to develop new projects.
The first recipients will be announced at the next APSA ceremony, scheduled on Queensland’s Gold Coast on Dec. 2.
