I have heard about film festivals like BQFF, etc. where they show films which have even failed to clear CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification)'s certification or few might not even applied for it.

How can a film festival be able to bypass CBFC certification? Do film festivals have a different rule in India for clearance than released films?

  • I guess it comes down to the definition of "public exhibition". Films (generally) only require a certificate if they are to be distributed to the general public. If it's a "private event", then no such certification is required. AFAIK. – Paulie_D Feb 26 '17 at 17:57
  • @Paulie_D Maybe you can elaborate it into an answer. – Ankit Sharma Mar 15 '17 at 13:32
