Film certificates

It is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child, but a ‘U’ film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over. Not all U films are aimed at children but may be rated U because they contain no material likely to offend or harm.

Legally a child of any age may view a U film.

PG films are suitable for general viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children – a PG film should not unsettle a child aged around eight or older. Unaccompanied children of any age may watch, but parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger or more sensitive children.

Legally a child of any age may view a PG film.

Films rated 12A are not recommended for children under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Children aged 12 and over may see a 12A film unaccompanied.

Responsibility for allowing under-12s to view lies with the accompanying or supervising adult, so adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child. Please read the BBFC Insight to see if the film is suitable for your child. This will tell you about key aspects of the film like violence, language, sex and horror.

12A AS LIVE

This certification is for live events (such as theatre and other Arts on Screen events) and guidance is as per a 12A certificate, but this “as live” certificate has been provided for cinema exhibition on the basis of information provided by the distributor and without the material being viewed prior to screening.

No-one under 15 is allowed to see a 15 film at the cinema. A cinema may lose its licence if it admits children under 15 to a 15 rated film.

No theme in a 15 rated film is prohibited, provided the treatment is appropriate for 15-year-olds and any dangerous or illegal behaviour is not endorsed or promoted by the film. Please read the BBFC Insight for your chosen film. This will tell you about key aspects of the film like violence, language, sex and horror.

Films rated 18 are for adults. No-one under 18 is allowed to see an 18 film at the cinema. A cinema may lose its license if children under 18 are admitted to an 18 rated film.

No theme is prohibited at 18. Adults are free to choose their own entertainment within the law, so it is possible some themes tackled at 18 may be offensive even to some adult viewers. Please read the BBFC Insight for your chosen film. This will tell you about key aspects of the film like violence, language, sex and horror.
