A Note on Ratings

The age ratings and advisories are provided by the festival’s programming team as a guideline only. Advisories relate to the age rating, therefore an advisory of 10+ (Nudity) could refer to an animated film that takes place in an art museum that has nude works of art. Many parents would be fine with their 10-year-old seeing such a film, whereas a film rated 14+ (Nudity, Sexual Content) could be considered by many parents to be inappropriate viewing even if the child is 14 years old although acceptable at age 16 or 17 (i.e. not so explicit as to be rated 18+). An advisory of 10+ (Mature Subject Matter) could refer to a child dealing with the death of a parent whereas an advisory of 14+ (Mature Subject Matter) could refer to a character who is contemplating suicide. The festival’s age rating system is similar but not identical to the following ratings used by Alberta Film Classification:

  • 5+ – roughly equivalent to a G rating
  • 10+ – roughly equivalent to a PG rating
  • 14+ – roughly equivalent to a 14A rating
  • 18+ – roughly equivalent to an 18A or R rating
