Sex On Screen: workshop with the BBFC
Join us for an illustrated crash course in how sex has been classified by the BBFC over the last 100+ years; from skinny dipping in Tarzan movies and cheeky innuendo in the Carry On innuendo to stronger scenes in art house classics of the 70's, right up to more recent depictions eg of the sexual encounters amongst teenagers in a show like Sex Education. How do the BBFC decide who can watch what? Tracking the history of sex on UK cinema screens, how opinions have changed since the first days of censorship in the 1920s and what concerns British audiences have about representations of sex, innuendo, sex references and nudity in films and online right now, the BBFC will show an assortment of clips, raise discussion points and answer questions about how sex, nudity and related issues are treated in each of the different age ratings, from U to 18 and the latest public consultation and BBFC Classification Guidelines published this year.
