I know about G, PG, A, R rated movies, but came across 'F' rated movies (e.g. on this list), does anybody know what it means?

    Simple "F-Rated" search gives enough information on the matter. Please try to use google search next time before asking simple straightforward questions. Just to save communities effort.

Wikipedia has this to say about "F-rating". It is to:

highlight films which either had a senior figure in production who was female – a director or a screenwriter – or had very strong female leads or women's issues

Or to put it more simply:

A rating to highlight women on screen and behind the camera.

I believe the "f" stands for "feminist".


The F-Rating is a classification for any film which

  1. has a woman directing the film

  2. has a woman writing the plot

  3. features significant women on screen in their own right

So basically female/feminist - rated films.
