Held in Brisbane, Australia, on November 23, 2012, APSA is arguably the most prestigious award-giving body in the Asia Pacific region (composed of 70 countries that produce one-half of the world’s film output). It is dubbed the Oscars of the region, supported by UNESCO and the Federation of International Film Producers Association (FIAPF).

In 2012, APSA received 264 entries from 39 countries, which went through a judging process in three key phases conducted by (1) APSA’s Advisory Committee and Selection Panels, (2) a Nominations Council and APSA Academy Members, and (3) an International Jury.

Ms. Nora Aunor bested formidable co-nominees from Russia, South Korea, India, and Pakistan, some of whom have been declared best of the year in their respective countries’ academy awards.

A video of the Australian TV broadcast of the 6th Asia Pacific Screen Awards ceremony was shown in its entirety at The Skydome, SM City North EDSA, on December 22, 2012, during the event “Thy Womb Fans Day.”
