Event description

Description

BBFC Film Study Day

This interactive masterclass will go behind the scenes at the BBFC, the British Board of Film Classification. The session will cover a general introduction to the history of censorship and classification in the UK, and include details on modern BBFC Guidelines, societal concerns and the current legislative framework that governs film and DVD classification, all illustrated with relevant film clips. Students will then watch a film that posed classification issues at a particular category, and discuss in detail the elements that determined the final certificate.

The film shown will be Gus Van Sant's 2003 film 'Elephant'. The film is based in part on the events of the Columbine High School Massacre. The study day will look at the challenges faced in arriving at the appropriate classifications for the film and allow students the opportunity to discuss this.

The day is well-suited to all students of A/AS-Level Film and Media Studies, GCSE students are also welcome but teachers shuold be aware that the film contains some graphic depictions of violence and the use of firearms.

The day will be hosted by a representative from the education team at the BBFC. I have previously attended a BBFC study day and student feedback was overwhelmingly positive so we are delighted to have the opportunity to host an event locally.

The BBFC are a not for profit organisation and there is no charge to students for the session. The charge for staff tickets is to cover the travel expenses of the BBFC speaker and our costs of hosting the event.

Practical Information

Tea/Coffee will be provided but guests will need to bring a packed lunch, if you have any specific requirements please contact me directly and I will be happy to help.
