For F’s Sake?

Really interesting post on the BBC this morning about sexism in the film industry. Is it time to expand the ‘F’ certificate that was first used at last year’s Bath Film Festival. They award it as follows:

It is given to any film that meets one of three criteria: It must be written by a woman, directed by a woman or feature “significant women on screen in their own right”.

Is this needed? Overdue? Patronising? An admission that people cannot self-regulate? And would it be a selling point for a film as far as you are concerned?

Please read the article, and leave your thoughts in the comments!
