Movies banned in China

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The People's Republic of China bans a lot of movies for many reasons. The National Film Administration (国家电影局) decides for mainland China.[1] Hong Kong and Macau have different political systems so the bans below do not apply. Taiwan, which is known as the Republic of China by those countries that recognize it, is not under the control and jurisdiction of the People's Republic of China.
