About the BBFC
At the BBFC, our focus is on helping children and families choose well by providing them with the guidance they need to help them choose what’s right for them and avoid what’s not.
With the huge growth in film, video and online content, and in how and where we can watch and use it, this is becoming more important than ever.
Through our experience, regular consultations and research, we are careful to reflect the views of people right across the country. We understand what matters to families and apply this knowledge in setting our standards.
We take the integrity and impartiality of our work very seriously and over the more than 100 years of our history, we have increasingly come to be recognised as the go-to guide that people can trust.
The structure of the BBFC and its management is designed to both reflect and reinforce this.
