In BC, all motion pictures must be classified (rated) before being shown in theatres, and all Adult and Restricted DVDs must be submitted for review and decaled before being sold or rented by retailers.

A motion picture may include, but is not limited to:

  • a movie or “feature”
  • a documentary
  • a short film
  • a featurette or “sneak preview”
  • an encore exhibition of a simultaneous broadcast
  • an advertising trailer
