    The Film and Video Classification Act 2016 and Regulations 2018 are administered by the Saskatchewan Film Classification (SFC) office within the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority (FCAA).  Two key components of this administration are the registration and classification requirements. 

    Registration with SFC is required if you intend to distribute, sell, rent, or publicly exhibit a film or video in Saskatchewan on a continual and successive basis.

    Classification is required (unless otherwise exempted) before a film is exhibited, distributed, rented, or sold in Saskatchewan.  This includes film exhibition, retail sales of DVD’s, or lending.  It applies to both commercial and non-commercial locations.
