Since it first emerged as a popular medium, cinema has been subjected to censorship from a broad cross section of society. What started with small town police officers and narrow-minded teachers enforcing their opinions progressed to government institutions enforcing newly established censorship laws. Throughout history, changes in social structure as well as in sexual politics have directly influenced the limits of what was considered acceptable on the screen and repeatedly, political upheavals have sparked a tide of banned and forbidden films.

Cinefest 2013 will reopen famous cases of censorship, looking at films that were put under lock and key in a variety of situations: by the Nazis when they came to power in 1933, by the Communist party in East Germany, or by the Warsaw Pact states after their invasion of Czechoslovakia. Following the example of the BBFC – which has recently celebrated its centenary in London – we will examine the progression from film “censorship” to film “classification”.
