FINAS AND THE MORE THAN RM 1 BILLION ALLOCATION IT HAD GOT FROM THE GOVERNMENT SINCE IT WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1981…

TO PROMOTE ‘NOSTALGIA’ OF PAST GLORIES OF THE OLD MALAYAN CINEMA THEN BASED IN SINGAPORE.


The most recognizable failure of Finas as the national film agency which is entrusted to develop it, is its failure to recreate it in a new form and shape, more suited to the demands of the times and to raise and develop new talents from the university graduates and those with specific talent and qualification in film.
