CREWE students were put in the picture about how films are classified after attending a presentation delivered by a leading figure from the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).

Heidi Renton, deputy education officer for the BBFC, addressed film and media students from South Cheshire College to tell them more about the criteria behind the film classification process.

Students then watched the film ‘Warm Bodies’ and highlighted the violent moments that caused concern.

They also analysed other different classification issues such as sexual references, harm, animal cruelty, horror, language, nudity, sex and violence.

Heidi said: “We design our education seminars to give students the chance to see the thinking behind the film classification process, discover how the BBFC uses wide-scale research to keep the classification guidelines up to date with public attitudes and why certain films are given different age ratings.”
