PQA Film Classification Badges
PQATV is the home of short films made by students at our Performing Arts Academies.
PQA film classification badges are designed to reassure you that the films children
may be watching here fit the PQA ethos in terms of subject, content and tone.
These coloured age ratings represent the ages of the students who made the short film.
At PQA we split groups into Green (aged 6-9 years), Blue (aged 10-12 years), and Red (aged 13-18 years).
Here's the guidance that we offer our Academies, in terms of short film content:
- References to or depictions of drugs and drug taking, alcohol or smoking is avoided unless presented in an educational context.
- No use of serious bad language.
- No use of racist, sexist or discriminatory language or behaviour unless it is presented in such a way as to highlight a problem and presents a viable solution (such as anti-bullying stories).
- No promotion of potentially dangerous behaviour which children are likely to copy.
- No glamorisation of realistic or easily accessible weapons
- No endorsement of anti-social behaviour.
These classifications should only be used as a guide for parents and guardians. Any final decisions on viewing suitability always lie with the responsible adult. These ratings are in no way affiliated with the BBFC.
