Mr. Yash Chopra was awarded the FIAPF Award for outstanding achievement in film making at the annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards, the region's highest accolade in films. The awards were announced last year on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, on 11th November 2008, amidst more than 700 film industry luminaries from the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and the United States.

Director General of the FIAPF, Benoit Ginisty, has flown into Mumbai to honour Mr. Yash Chopra who unfortunately could not attend the award ceremony last year. The felicitation ceremony will take place tonight at the esteemed Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image (MAMI) Film Festival.

The FIAPF-Federation International des Associations de Producteurs de Films (International Federation of Film Producers Associations) based in Paris, created in 1933, is an organization composed with 31 member associations from 25 of the leading audiovisual production countries. FIAPF is also in charge of supervising international film festivals, including some of the world's most important ones.

At the award ceremony last year, President of FIAPF, Mr Andres Vincente Gomez, described Mr. Chopra as "a legend in Hindi cinema who has played a seminal role in making Indian films more popular the world over."
