At a press conference announcing the date of the 31st Malaysia Film Festival at the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) headquarters, CEO Ahmad Idham Ahmad Nadzri was present alongside Finas chairman Datuk Hans Isaac.
In December, Finas had announced that Idham would leave his post as CEO after serving the body for just one year, instead of the scheduled two years.
Today, he confirmed he will be serving the full term after all.
Idham told the press that he never sent in a resignation letter. He just needed time to settle a personal matter, which he said had to do with his PhD, and had asked for a shorter term.
"I came back to work on Jan 10 after my break and started work immediately. There's a lot we want to accomplish," he said.
One of the things on his plate is the Malaysia Film Festival, which will take place April 9-18. Filmmakers who want to compete can go to Finas facebook for more details or email firstname.lastname@example.org
