A FINAS-funded movie, Vik2ria Secret, bombed at the box office recently, sparking a debate over the use of taxpayer money as well as the role of the agency. Together with Datuk Kamil Othman, Chairman of National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS), we discuss the existing funding mechanisms, their ongoing missions to elevate Malaysian cinema, and what it means to achieve international success.
