Approval of Organisations to Display Restricted and Classified Films at Events - Western Australia

Description

You will require this approval if you are an organisation and intend to show and exhibit restricted or classified films at an event in Western Australia.

Films are classified according to the National Classification Code. Certain films are restricted to adults because they contain material which may cause offence or is unsuitable for a person under the age of 18.

Once your organisation is approved you can apply for exemptions to show specific films at specific events. These films would otherwise not be allowed to be shown due to their classification as restricted, containing indecent content or unsuitable for the viewing of minors.
