Age ratings for films in Luxembourg
ALIA now publishes the age ratings for all films released in cinemas in Luxembourg
A database compiled by ALIA indicating the age ratings of all films released in cinemas in Luxembourg since the beginning of 2017 is now available to the public. The list can be downloaded from the cinema section of the website.
In Luxembourg, cinema operators are responsible for classifying all films they screen in one of the various age categories laid down by legislation. Under the Law of 20 April 2009 on Admission to Film Screenings, ALIA supervises film classification and verifies that cinema operators comply with and publish these ratings. It also assesses the classification selected by operators and, if deemed necessary, may reclassify films by a reasoned decision.
ALIA now has an official record indicating the ratings of films released in cinemas that both the general public and television service providers can consult to find out about film ratings. Similar initiatives have been adopted in Luxembourg’s neighbouring countries, by the FSK (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft) in Germany, the CNC (Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée) in France and Nicam (the Netherlands Institute for the Classification of Audiovisual Media) and its Kijkwijzer platform in the Netherlands.
