An Australian film industry coalition is calling for new classification between PG and M (which is a PG-15 rating).
Major and independent film distributors and exhibitors are urging the federal government to adopt a new PG13 classification which they
say would benefit family-friendly Australian and international films that get M ratings.
Echoing calls by Screen Producers Australia and the Australian Children's Television Foundation, the Film Industry Associations (FIA) also advocates a uniform
classification system across all delivery platforms, with self-classification by the industry, overseen by a government regulator.
The say the current review system is no longer fit-for-purpose. It is expensive and unfeasibly time-consuming
in an environment where digital distribution has minimised the time between the delivery of a film and its release date, the FIA says in its submission to the government classification review.
