The actual festival will take place next month at Tunku Puan Chik Auditorium, Tuanku Muhammad Broadcasting Complex, Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. This will be the first time the festival is to be held in Seremban.
Mohd Zulkifli Ab. Wahab, Director of Industrial Development of FINAS, stated wanting other states to feel the heat of FFM 26 as reason for not holding it at Putrajaya this year.
Other states that have previously played host to the event include Johor, Melaka, Penang, Perak and Sabah
FFM 26 was originally scheduled to be held back in September but was postponed out of respect for the MH17 tragedy.
