Veteran actress Kim Hye-ja won the Best Performance by an Actress award at an Asia-Pacific film festival, Thursday, for her intense acting in the hit film "Mother - 2009".

The 68-year-old actress received the award at the 3rd annual Asia Pacific Screen Awards in Queensland, Australia. The film, directed by Bong Joon-ho, features an obsessed mother who becomes involved in a murder case, desperately striving to save her son from being imprisoned.

The hit crime thriller was the actress' screen debut, and she received critical acclaim for her performance, which led to her win the Best Actress award at the China Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival early last month.

Meanwhile, director Yang Ik-june won the High Commendation Award for his film "Breathless", while "A Brand New Life", produced by filmmaker Lee Chang-dong, won the Best Children's Feature Film award.

The Asia Pacific Screen Awards is an international cultural initiative of Queensland to honor and promote films, actors, directors and cultures to a global audience. This year, a total of 37 films from 16 countries competed for the awards. The Australian film "Samson and Delilah" won for Best Feature Film.

중견배우 김혜자 (68)가 26일 호주 퀸스랜드에서 열린 제3회 아시아태평양영화제에서 `마더'에서의 열연으로 여우주연상을 수상했다.
