Politically, censorship laws must be strictly followed, and approvals are required for any content that could threaten national interests. Cultural considerations include respecting sensitivity around religion, history, and ethnicity in scripting and portrayal.

Language barriers can complicate communication, especially in smaller cities and rural areas. Regulations vary broadly across China’s regions, so requirements and permissions needed in one province may differ greatly from another.
