On June 25, the Hong Kong independent theater Broadway Cinematheque announced the cancellation of screenings of the documentary Taiwan Equals Love (2020), after the Film Censorship Authority (FCA) in Hong Kong did not authorize its full showing. Organizers of the 12-day-long film program “EU-Asia Rainbow Docs,” in celebration of Pride Month, had previously agreed not to screen any censored films during the festival.
