Since 2014 Bath Film Festival has introduced a category of F-rated films, designed to help redress, in part, this imbalance. F rated films have either a woman director or writer or both. If a film also stars significant women it receives a Triple F rated  classification. IMDB has adopted the use of F ratings, along with over 60 film festivals,  Borderlines and The Barbican amongst others.

The Purbeck Film Festival is proud to screened 21 F rated films over the Festival's 2 weeks:
