Classification guide

As required by law, the NFSA has included the classification markings for the films to which a clip relates where that film has been previously classified.

Some of the clips included on this site have been taken from films classified as MA15+ or above as the NFSA considers that these films have considerable cultural and historical significance. While the NFSA has endeavoured to only select clips from these titles where the impact on the viewer of any of the themes, violence, sex, drug use, nudity, in the clip would be low level, there are some titles where these elements may have a moderate impact. Users of the site should therefore take care to note the classification markings of the film to which a clip relates and ensure that appropriate parental guidance is provided to minors viewing clips from films classified at a PG rating or above.

Clips displayed without classification markings have been displayed as such as they are taken from films which are exempt from classification under section 5B of the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games) Act, 1995 (Cth).
