BBFC Classification Guidelines


18 Suitable only for adults No-one younger than 18 may see an ‘18’ film in a cinema. No-one younger than 18 may rent or buy an ‘18’ rated video. In line with the consistent findings of the BBFC’s public consultations and The Human Rights Act 1998, at ‘18’ the BBFC’s guideline concerns will not normally override the principle that adults should be free to choose their own entertainment. Exceptions are most likely in the following areas: where the material is in breach of the criminal law, or has been created through the commission of a criminal offence where material or treatment appears to the BBFC to risk harm to individuals or, through their behaviour, to society – for example, any detailed portrayal of violent or dangerous acts, or of illegal drug use, which may cause harm to public health or morals . This may include portrayals of sexual or sexualised violence which might, for example, eroticise or endorse sexual assault where there are more explicit images of sexual activity which cannot be justified by context. Such images may be appropriate in ‘R18’ works, and in ‘sex works’ (see below) would normally be confined to that category. In the case of video works (including video games), which may be more accessible to younger viewers, intervention may be more frequent than for cinema films.


OUR FILM RATING CERTIFICATE IS...... 18 we decided this because the themes that are in our Film is violence, Murder-(Killing pregnant women and foetus’) ,repetitive swearing , drug substance the supernatural (Voodoo) and alcohol abuse. This means that we have an age restricted audience to anyone who is below the age of 18 .This is a disadvantage because people aged 15/16 cant watch the film and these are generally the audience who most likely go cinema to meet up with friends. The advantage of our film being an 18 certificate is that we have no restrictions of using limited swear words such as F*** where for example in an aged 15 rated it could only be used around five times. We can also use scenes of violence
