the F-Rating

Developed by FilmBath (previously Bath Film Festival) and now expanding across the UK, the F-Rating is a new film rating which highlights films made by and featuring women. 

Any film that answers yes to one of these questions is awarded the F-Rating stamp of approval: 

1. Does it have a female director? 

2. Is it written by a woman? 

If a film answers yes to BOTH these questions AND features significant female characters on screen in their own right, then it is awarded a TRIPLE F-Rating, our gold standard. 

The aims of the F-Rating are: 

1. To champion women in film and highlight the fantastic work they are doing. 

2. To encourage conversation around who tells the stories we see on screen – and whether that matters. 

3. To act like a Fairtrade stamp, giving the audience an opportunity to #VoteWithYourSeat, and support women in film.
