Queer VS Censorship

Screening + Panel Discussion

Film censorship presents an endless conundrum for filmmakers in China and suppresses creativity and freedom of expression.  The general prohibition on LGBT-­‐related content in films has been a huge obstacle for queer film production in China, which has only been able to develop underground.  During recent years, gay characters have occasionally popped up in mainstream films -­ does this signal a change in the present censorship system? What will happen when the present system is changed? Can a film classification system solve the current problems?
This panel session invites scholars and directors to share their views on the present and the future of film censorship in China.
