Malaysian filmmaker and actor Dato Hans Isaac has revealed that he has been shortlisted to be the next chairman of FINAS (National Film Development Corporation Malaysia), possibly taking over the position from Dato Mohd Khusairi Abdul Talib.
The 47-year-old said that he already attended several interview sessions for the position a month ago, but the decision has yet to be finalised. “There are a few other individuals including me that have been shortlisted but the result hasn’t been announced yet,” the actor told Utusan Malaysia.
“From what I know, they have already announced the posts for FINAS board members, but the for the chairman post, we need to wait for announcement from the ministry,” he added.
When asked what the “Celebrity Car Wars” star would like to do if he got the position, he said, “If given the opportunity, I would like to create an Employees Provident Fund (EPF) for local arts enthusiasts and industry players.”
“I have suggested this for a long time because I believe that the welfare of young filmmakers should take precedence and I will make sure that equality will be given to all the players in the local film industry,” he said. as quoted.
