With this, based on the article in PEP, MTRCB released the film ratings to give a guide to viewers throughout the run of this year’s film festival. These ratings are imposed for viewers to be aware of the content of the movies, including scenes, language, and plot.

The G rating or “General Audience” is given to films that are suitable for all audiences or it can be called child-friendly. This year, Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Alden Richards’s Family Of Two falls under this category, as well as, Matteo Guidicelli’s Pedro Penduko.

PG stands for Parental Guidance and this means that viewers below 13 years old must be accompanied by a parent or supervising adult when watching the film. The majority of the MMFF 2023 entries fall under this category such as  Becky & Badette featuring comedienne friends Eugene Domingo and Pokwang under The IdeaFirst Company Inc., and LGBT comedy film Broken Hearts Trip backed by BMC Films starring Christian Bables.

The reunion movie of Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes also belongs to the PG category. This film is titled Rewind and co-produced by ABS-CBN Film Productions. Vilma Santos and Christopher de Leon’s I Met You in Tokyo produced by JG Productions is also rated PG.

R-13 or Restricted 13 is the rating given to movies that contain themes, language, violence, n*dity, s+x, horror, and drugs not suitable for children below 13 years old. This category is where the movie Kampon of Beauty Gonzalez and Derek Ramsay falls as well as Piolo Pascual’s Mallari.
