Authorities in China have shut down the 2104 Beijing Independent Film Festival.
Officials blocked the entrance to the festival in Songzhuang on Sunday (24Aug14) just as the event was getting underway, and refused to let film fans and those involved enter the Li Xianting Film Fund centre setting for the 11th annual event.
A notice, which read "Announcement. The festival is hereby called off" and signed by the Xiaopu Village Committee, was attached to the door of the premises.
A series of films and promotional sessions scheduled for the day were cancelled.
It is still not clear why the festival was axed.
