KUALA LUMPUR: Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo wants all sectors to provide inputs to inspire Malaysia's local film industry.
He said there had to be a combination of different minds to take the industry forward.
However, he said, there were issues and problems at all levels that had to be dealt with.
"This is the challenge and we need to deal with it," he said in a Twitter post today, in response to a suggestion by a user Isk Aziz @iskaziz to boost the local film scene which had a series of box-office hits of late.
