The Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) will relocate from Australia's Gold Coast to nearby Brisbane, Queensland (pictured), it was confirmed this week.
Now in their sixth year, the awards will be presented at a ceremony on 23 Nov at QPAC Playhouse on Brisbane's South Bank.
"This is a coming of age for APSA," said APSA chairman, Des Power. "Presenting the awards in [Queensland's] capital city is a natural progression for the event."
The awards receive significant financing from the Queensland state government.
It is expected that the shift along the coast will allow the APSA ceremony and its precursor events to better cooperate with the Brisbane International Film Festival which this year runs from 14-25 Nov.
