F Rated (for feminist films)
The F-rating was founded by Holly Tarquini at Bath Film Festival 2014 where we wanted to highlight films which feature prominent women both behind the camera and in front of it. Every film which ticks yes to the one of the following questions receives the F-rating of approval: 1. Does it have a female director? 2. Is it written by a woman? 3. Is/are there complex female characters on screen who exist in their own right (not simply there to support to the male lead)? The F stands for feminist. Feminism is: “The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities.” For more info visit the Bath Film Festival website
