Let's work on winning an Oscar, just like Korea, says Saifuddin

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah wants the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (Finas) to embark on a "Project Oscar" roadmap, aimed at getting a Malaysian film to win cinema's most coveted awards.

Referring to the South Korean film, Parasite, which won the 2019 best picture award at the Academy Awards, the Communications and Multimedia Minister said if South Korea could do it, then there was nothing to stop Malaysia from pulling off the same feat.
