  1. Film Censorship Act 2002 (Act 620)

The Film Censorship Act 2002 (Act 620) is an act that regulates the film industry in Malaysia. The main objective of the act is to protect public morality, maintain national security, and prevent the spread of harmful content through films. The act applies to all films produced, imported, distributed, and exhibited in Malaysia.

Under this act, all films must be approved by the Film Censorship Board (LPF) before they can be screened in Malaysia. The LPF has the authority to ban films that are deemed harmful to public morality, national security, or social stability. The board also has the power to require filmmakers to make cuts or changes to their films to comply with the guidelines.

The guidelines set by the LPF cover a wide range of issues, including nudity, sexual content, violence, drug use, and religious sensitivities. Films that contain excessive or gratuitous depictions of these themes may be banned or censored.

The Perbadanan Kemajuan Filem Nasional Malaysia Act 1981 (Act 244) is an act that established the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS). The objective of the act is to develop, promote, and regulate the film industry in Malaysia.

Under this act, FINAS is responsible for providing financial and technical assistance to Malaysian filmmakers. The corporation also has the power to regulate the production, distribution, and exhibition of films in Malaysia. FINAS works closely with the LPF to ensure that films produced in Malaysia comply with the guidelines set by the board.

In addition to supporting the local film industry, FINAS is also responsible for promoting Malaysian films internationally. The corporation organizes film festivals and events to showcase Malaysian films to audiences around the world.

In conclusion, the Film Censorship Act 2002 (Act 620) and Perbadanan Kemajuan Filem Nasional Malaysia Act 1981 (Act 244) are two important acts that govern the film industry in Malaysia. These acts provide guidelines and regulations on film censorship, distribution, and production to ensure that films produced and exhibited in Malaysia are in line with the country's cultural and moral values.
