Classifying The Horror Film

  • A Presentation by David Hyman

Wed 15 Nov 17:30

David Hyman is a Compliance Officer at the British Board of Film Classification. In this presentation, David explains how the BBFC treats horror films through the rating system, including clips from films as well as the rationale behind the ratings awarded. The presentation will conclude with a question and answer session.

We’re delighted to welcome the BBFC in person to the festival, and learn first-hand how the organisation has changed over the decades, how it shaped our experiences growing up and fuelled nostalgia for films that are now readily available.
