Chinese government releases new guidelines for science fiction

The China Film Administration, which is part of China's Central Publicity Department and the China Association for Science and Technology, has released a new official set of moviemaking guidelines titled, "A Few Opinions on the Promotion and Development of Science Fiction Movies." As Variety reports:

To make strong movies, the document claims, the number one priority is to "thoroughly study and implement Xi Jinping Thought." […] This includes creating films that "highlight Chinese values, inherit Chinese culture and aesthetics, cultivate contemporary Chinese innovation" as well as "disseminate scientific thought" and "raise the spirit of scientists." Chinese sci-fi films should thus portray China in a positive light as a technologically advanced nation.
