I just had a look. You pay a submission fee and then a charge per minute of film. A 90 min feature costs........245

Isn't the submission fee astronomical though? Like a few grand?

I was looking at the wrong part of the site! It's a little more expensive. but it looks like it's 75 submission fee, plus 6 per minute of film, so a 90min on dvd/blu-ray would cost around 610 (unless I'm reading it wrong, in which case, someone hand me a towel to wipe this egg off my face!)

Isn't there a '5 year' rule for resubmitting films to the BBFC, I seem to remember that once a certificate is granted the company has to wait 5 years to resubmit unless they appeal the rating (tho that may only apply if the film is refused)

Fee Tariff | British Board of Film Classification

I think you're right. I always thought the fee was a lot more as I remember reading about how it was unfair on low budget films who would be forced to pay the same as the big blockbusters. Looking at that a 2 hour film for theatrical classification (which is a little bit different to dvd costwise) would cost just under 1000 which doesn't seem too bad. That said, what happens to the money? Do the BBFC turn a profit? They'd be raking it in!

More to the point, they are clearly acting as a monopoly. I was wondering about whether there is some European ruling against this. Don't think it would count if the BBFC was a state body but then we would have state censorship...
