The Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) is a statutory classification body which provides day to day administrative support for the Classification Board which classified films, computer games and publications in Australia, and the Classification Review Board which reviews films, computer games and publications when a valid application has been made.
Film and video game ratingsEdit
G (General) – These films and computer games are for general viewing. However, G does not conclusively mean a children’s film or game because many of these productions contain content that would be of no interest to children.
The content is very mild.
PG (Parental Guidance) – These films and computer games contain material that a parent might need to explain to younger children.
The content is mild.
M (Mature) – These films and computer games contain material that requires a mature perspective.
The content is moderate.
MA15+ (Mature Accompanied) – People under 15 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian for the duration of the film in the cinema. Parental permission to see an MA15+ film is not sufficient. People under 15 are not permitted to hire or buy films or computer games classified MA15+.
The content is strong.
Previous video game ratings Edit
These ratings are still shown on some older video games that are still on sale in Australia.
