Film Classification research By Laurena Etwi

British Board of Film Classification When making a movie there are certain legal guidelines that have to be considered depending on the country of release. It is for instance part of the law in Britain to certify the film showing its suitability for a specific audience and this is done by an official organisation. In Britain the first set guidelines were set by The ‘British Board of Film Classification’ (1992).

Universal Used when movie is for all ages, including younger children. It is therefore important that the movie does not contain any foul language, drug or sexual content that is unsuitable for this age.

Parental Guidance This means that it is suitable for general viewing, some scenes however may be advice to be watched with parental guidance depending on the age of the child. The PG helps limit the amount of damage exposure to for example domestic violence, racism etc. to unsuitable audiences.

When it has a specific age mentioned the content is only suitable for that age as for 18+ there may be sexual content, violence etc. that won’t necessarily be suitable to a 16+ audience. In 12+ the violence has to be moderate.

Applying it to my own work As a result of conducting this research I was able to decided that my movie would be ‘Universal’ rated due to its content being harmless and suitable to all ages. However young children would maybe struggle to understand the plot and narrative due to over complications such as flashbacks and dialogue of the actors.
