The Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) and FIAPF-International Federation of Film Producers Associations announced that internationally renowned Japanese composer, actor and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto will be the 2012 recipient of the FIAPF award for Outstanding Achievement in Film in the Asia Pacific region.

An Oscar, Grammy and two time Golden Globe winner for his film compositions, Ryuichi Sakamoto will personally accept the award at the sixth annual APSA ceremony on November 23 in Brisbane, Australia.

In what will be an undeniable highlight, APSA is honoured to confirm virtuoso pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto will perform two pieces during the ceremony. This Australian exclusive performance will mark the first time in six years that Ryuichi Sakamoto has performed in the country.

Within the world of film Sakamoto's vast body of work is incredibly diverse, with his dozens of film scores covering fiction, documentary and animated feature films. Attesting to the unparalleled quality and universal appeal of his work, Sakamoto's outstanding musical compositions have played a key role in films by filmmakers from both across the Asia Pacific region and far beyond, as well as films set around the world and in a multitude of languages including Arabic, Japanese, English, French and Spanish.

As the recipient of the FIAPF Award, Mr Sakamoto will be inducted into the Asia Pacific Screen Academy, joining fellow Japanese filmmakers who, since 2007, have collectively received nominations in every APSA award category, including APSA award winners Noritaka Kawaguchi, Masahiro Motoki, Isao Matsuoka, and Shinobu Terajima.

Films from Japan have received six award nominations for the sixth annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards, the equal highest amount of nominations from any country in 2012, with Turkey also receiving six nominations. Films from Japan are nominated across the three categories of Best Documentary, Animated and Children's Feature Film, with winners in these categories to be determined by the Asia Pacific Screen Academy members.

The Asia Pacific Screen Awards is an international cultural initiative of the Queensland Government, Australia with the support of Events Queensland, endorsed by UNESCO and FIAPF-International Federation of Film Producers' Associations, in alliance with the European Film Academy and AFI | AACTA.
