Due to the tension between China and Taiwan, Beijing has banned its artists from participating in the competition. This is the second year in a row that no mainland Chinese talent has participated in the competition. Taiwan split from the mainland after the civil war in 1949, but China still calls the island part of its territory.

These tensions have already appeared at the music festival. In 2018, the documentary film director Fu Yue called on the world to recognize Taiwan as an independent country in his speech at the awards ceremony. Currently, only a few countries do so.

In response, the Chinese participants refused to appear on the stage, made clear comments that Taiwan and China are members of the same family, and then refused to attend the banquet reception after the performance.

China has its film award, the Golden Rooster Award, which is restricted by government ideology and censorship.
