Festive Films, the Singaporean film distribution company who made a conditional offer on Cut Sleeve Boys have just informed the producers that the film has been banned in Singapore. According to Mr Sim Wee Boon of Festive Films the Singapore Board of Film Censors declared the film was “disallowed for any form of exhibition due to the promotion of the alternative lifestyle".

Interview with Ray Yeung by Pink News! "Gay Chinese movie confronts stereotypes"

Following the Taiwanese premiere of CUT SLEEVE BOYS at the Taipei International Film Festival, the film later ran in the summer alongside three European romantic comedies. This was great for the film as it managed to break out of the sexuality and ethnicity box and was screened at mainstream cinemas in Taipei defined purely within the romantic comedy genre.
