Movie, TV Productions May Resume from 10 June


The government has decided to permit movie and television productions to resume shooting starting next Wednesday, said Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said this was decided in today’s ministerial meeting on implementing the movement control order (MCO) and applied to advertisement productions as well.

“All those participating in filming activities are reminded to adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOP). Social distancing and self-hygiene should be practiced at all times,” Ismail said during the daily security briefing.

Shortly after the MCO commenced on March 18, the National Film Development Corporation (FINAS) advised all licence holders to temporarily postpone all filming until the nationwide lockdown was lifted.

FINAS also said its service counters for licence renewals and the payment of fees for imported films will also be closed until further notice.
