Studio 74 is proud to champion women in film, and we are delighted to be part of the F-Rating movement. Throughout our programme you will see the 'F-Rated' tag accompanying selected films in our programme.

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. To be awarded the F-Rating stamp of approval films must answer 'yes' to one of these questions:

  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?

Any film that answers yes to all three of the questions is awarded Triple F-Rated status.

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.
