ASPA Selects Iranian Critic to Judge Contest

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian film critic, Mohammad Atebaei will judge this year's Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) participants who compete to win a $5,000 inaugural prize in November.



The 5,000-dollar APSA-NETPAC Development Prize will be awarded to a filmmaker, whose movie is in the running for the main awards.

Atebaie's film critiques are well-known and he served as head of international relations of Iran's Performing Arts Center.

In a bid to make progress in Asia's movie industry, APSA joined the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema (NETPAC) to provide financial support for emerging Asian filmmakers.

"APSA supports the objectives of NETPAC to promote Asian cinema and we appreciate the cooperation we have had with NETPAC since our inception," said APSA chairman Des Power, in Brisbane on Saturday.
