  • Time: 7.30pm
  • Tickets: £9
  • Types: Q and A, Talk

Have you ever wondered how decisions are reached for the age ratings on films? What makes the difference between a 12A and 15 scene, and what material might possibly need to be cut – and why?

Come along to our Behind the scenes at the BBFC masterclass session and hear about both the history of the British Board of Classification, and how modern Classification Guidelines are interpreted when applying age ratings to films.

BBFC Education Officer, Emily Fussell, will discuss the legal and ethical considerations of BBFC Compliance Officers, and illustrate her talk with clips from feature films, trailers, DVD and digital works across the age ratings.

There will also be an opportunity for a Q&A session.

Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to attend this talk.
