BBFC Age Ratings for Exhibitors
Under the Licensing Act in England and Wales, and equivalent legislation in Scotland and Northern Ireland, cinemas in the UK enforce BBFC age ratings.
This poster is designed for exhibitors to use to help remind members of the public what each of the age ratings mean. It includes descriptions of each of the age rating categories for films: U, PG, 12A, 15 and 18. The poster also reminds cinema goers that all films come with detailed content advice called BBFCinsight which can be found on film posters, at www.bbfc.co.uk and on the free BBFC app.
The poster is designed to be printed at A3 or A2 size and is available in portrait and landscape.
Using BBFC age ratings for advertising screenings
BBFC age ratings should only be used to advertise films classified by the BBFC. If a film is not classified, or is yet to receive a classification when your screening schedule is published, the film must be marked as 'tbc'.
