Joining fest programming director Yoshi Yatabe on the jury will be filmmaker and historian Andrew Pike, Indian actress Tannishtha Chatterjee and Chinese film producer and distributor Alexandra Sun. The jury will award four $25,000 grants to support, at script stage, new feature film projects from APSA Academy members.
Recipients of the eighth round of the grants, funded by the MPA, will be announced Nov. 23 during the 11th Asia Pacific Screen Awards in Brisbane, Australia.
“The 28 projects funded to date hail from 19 countries and areas of Asia Pacific, and represent the MPA’s commitment to supporting and developing the work of storytellers from right across this region,” said Motion Picture Association of America chairman Chris Dodd at the MPA Seminar at TIFF, where he and Yatabe made the announcement.
