Something bruing at Finas?


Not many people take Finas to be a cash cow but that's what the National Film Development Corporation is, among other things. Industry players say Finas sits on a pile of "creative industry" grants worth more than RM100  million annually. By any standard, that's a mighty big cow.  
Afendi
And so when I was directed to the blog Asam Pedas, which has dedicated four consecutive postings to the alleged politic of Finas and its Chairman Md Afendi Hamdan, I suspect it has something to do with all that money.  
So far, Afendi hasn't responded to the blogger or the allegations but I think he should, the sooner the better, especially with regards to the alleged abuses. The Chairman of Finas should speak out not only to defend his reputation against the mud-slinging but, more importantly, to preserve the integrity of the relevant Ministry, of Finas and its staff, including the high-profiled personalities on the Perbadanan board.
And there's also talk that Md Afendi is eying the chairmanship of the powerful Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), whose job, among others things, is to regulate blogs like Asam Pedas and this blog you're reading ...

Think your friend, Brick wrote about him when Rais sabotaged the release of TANDA PUTERA.

In cohort with him are director Ahmad Idham and David Wong. However, this Sabahan has friends in high places. Believe it is Najib.

If BN still keep this guy, there will be more Abby Abadi and Aishah up in arms against government.

"Tapi persoalannya, adakah orang Melayu akan kehilangan dunia. Mungkinkah nanti orang Melayu dah tiada dunianya sendiri seperti di Singapura? Seperti di Pulau Pinang? Di Selangor? Anak cucu aku akan ke mana selepas ini?"

Di Selangor????

Rangkaian Cinema Melayu said...

UMNO perlu bangunkan panggung wayang Melayu. Bukannya mahal. Lagitu panggung wayang ini boleh jadi self sustaining sebab ia menguntungkan orang Cina yang buka panggung.
Panggung wayang ini adalah penting untuk keselamatan anak muda melayu kerana terbukti melayu telah dibunuh oleh orang Cina ketika dalam panggung wayang pada 13 mei.
Jadi UMNO tunggu apa lagi?
Tunggu Melayu kena sembelih lagi?
Itu pu..mak. Mahathir dan Rais lah yang bangsat tak tolong filem Melayu dan budaya.
