To celebrate the centenary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), the state Film Administration issued a “Notice on the commencement of the exhibition and screening of outstanding films to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese Communist Party.” The Notice required that, from April to December, all cinemas across the country show at least two “red movies” every week, promoting the CCP.
The CCP’s mouthpiece media People’s Daily Online reported that the notice requires that two movie theater alliances – The People’s Cinema and The Nationwide Alliance of Arthouse Cinemas – are tasked with no less than 5 “Red Movies” per week. The notice asked that, nationwide, urban and rural communities and school campuses conduct movie screening activities having the theme of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the CCP. CCP members and officials are to be organized to watch some “key films on CCP history” together.
