Golden Lion-nominated and Sitges three times winner The Sky Crawlers, directed by Mamoru Oshii is one of the five nominees in the Best Animated Feature Film category of the third annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards. The award ceremony will be held on Australia's Gold Coast on November 26, 2009.

The Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) acclaims, at a global level, the cinematic excellence and cultural diversity of the vast Asia-Pacific region. Supported by UNESCO, the initiative honours the works of filmmakers across a vast region stretching from Egypt in the west to the Cook Islands in the east, and from Russia in the north to New Zealand in the south. In total, an area representing four billion people; 60 percent of the global population; 70 countries and areas; one third of the earth; and half the world's film output.
