BBFC Press Kit

The BBFC press kit is designed to provide journalists, bloggers and picture desks with up to date BBFC logos and standard information about the BBFC.

The BBFC logo can be downloaded below.

The CBBFC website logo is also available. CBBFC is designed to give younger children easy to understand information about age ratings in the UK, and offer them the chance to find out about recent films and think about how age ratings work.

Age rating symbols

To use BBFC age rating symbols please email Brittany Maher-Kirk.

BBFC age ratings should only be used against film, video or online content classified by the BBFC. You can use our website to check the age rating for a particular title. Other uses are not permitted. However we do consider requests to use BBFC age ratings in media reporting on a case by case basis.

About The BBFC

Independent and not-for-profit, the BBFC is here to help everyone in the UK – especially children and families - choose age-appropriate films, videos and websites, wherever and however they watch or use them. With over 100 years’ experience, we regularly consult people across the UK to listen to what they say, think and feel about what’s appropriate for children of all ages to watch. And the services we offer are continually evolving. Now, as well as classifying films released in UK cinemas and on DVD and Blu-ray, we’re providing age-ratings for Video On Demand and music videos online, and helping mobile phone operators set parental controls at the right level. We’re also setting the standards for how the adult industry will age-verify people accessing online pornography, helping give children protection online as well as offline, and continuing to help everyone – children, families and adults - choose well.


CBBFC is the BBFC’s website for children. CBBFC includes activities to help children learn about film classification, plus BBFC competitions and news about the latest kids films classified U, PG and 12A. CBBFC also includes a section for adults, where parents of younger children can read about BBFC age ratings and find answers to frequently asked questions from other parents.
