State Council publishes Draft Film Promotion Law
The State Council has issued the opinion-seeking draft for the Film Promotion Law (电影促进法) that has been on the cards for some time. It’s quite a long document, but I’ll make a translation available soon. Content regulation is further tightened, as the new law outlaws resistance against the constitution and promotion of religious fanaticism. At the same time, the draft states it is aimed to lower barriers to market access and benefit market subjects, provide structured support to the film sector and standardize the film market.
