Directed by a woman AND written by a woman AND starring significant women

Diversity statistics across the industry are extremely poor: 13.6% of all films made in the UK over the past 10 years have had a female screenwriter attached, and only 11% employed a female director.

Despite recent publicity suggesting equality in cinema is on the rise, statistics show very little growth or improvement, both in the UK & oversees. The F-Rating is a response to this, designed to support and promote women in film, both on and off-screen

About The F-Rating

Developed by Bath Film Festival and now expanding across the UK, the F-Rating is a new film rating which highlight 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?
  3. Are there significant female characters on screen in their own right?

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.
