One piece of advice for any filmmaker selling to a UK distributor who is going to release a DVD is that for a 90 minute film that is not expected to sell more than 1000 units in Ireland in the first year, the fee is approx. $300, but if you plan to sell more than 1000 units in the first year, the fee jumps to approx. $1100. This fee will be recouped, so it’s a good idea to press the distributor about which level they will be applying for, because it’s your money they will be spending.
To apply yourself for a rating, write to the Irish Film Classification Office. You must fill out an application, send them a physical DVD or Blu-Ray, and pay via bank transfer. The application process takes around 4 weeks.
|Australia||AU||Rating by the Australian Classification Board is required for all internet content. Cost for a 60-120 minute film and trailer is around $700. More Information.|
|New Zealand||NZ||Rating by the New Zealand Office of Film and Literature Classification is required for all internet content. Cost for a 60-120 minute film is around $900. More Information. However, if the film has been classified in Australia as G, PG or M or in the UK as U, PG, 12/12A, the FVLB will issue a New Zealand label for the film which is the equivalent rating to the Australian or UK classification for around $80. (Australian classifications take precedence over UK ones.) If a film has gotten a restricted rating in either of these territories, it has to be re-classified by New Zealand and the full rate willbe charged. More Information. And even though documentaries are listed as exempted, iTunes appears to require a rating anyway.|
|South Africa||ZA||Rating by the South African Classification Board is required for all internet content. More Information.|
