Rejections and Appeals

Rejections and Appeals

What happens if the distributors submit a film for inspection and disagree with the Censor's decision, on either publicity, trailer, excision or rejection?

In this case they may appeal to a special three-member board who will view the disputed film (or other material) and judge the case on its merits, starting right from scratch. They may then amend the Censor's original decision or uphold it. Usually there is little need for the distributors to appeal, for they get, on the whole, a pretty fair deal. Each year, however, there is a small handful of appeals which is heard by the board. The following notes may be found in the Censor's annual reports.
