Secondary National Schools Film Week 2012

BBFC Examiners will introduce a series of free screenings for schools as collaborators on Film Education's National Schools Film Week 2012

Date 09/10/2012

In our centenary year BBFC is again proud to work with Film Education on National Schools Film Week

BBFC examiners will travel across the country introducing a variety of films and delivering industry ‘masterclasses’ to secondary school students. They will discuss age ratings, recent decisions and the history of the BBFC and ask teenagers their view on how films are rated and what issues they think are important. There will be opportunities for questions and debate during the sessions which offer in depth insight into the work of the BBFC. Films selected this year include Wild Bill, The Awakening and We Need To Talk About Kevin. Case studies are available for each of these films on this website here.

The secondary school events will be especially useful to Media and Film Studies students looking to take a broader view of the history of classification, the film industry and the BBFC’s approach to regulation.  Case Study materials to support all BBFC masterclasses and events are available on our websites www.bbfc.co.uk.

The BBFC is the UK’s independent regulator for cinema films.
