Incidental Film - amendment to Part 2 schedule 1 of the licensing act 2003
Incidental film - an exhibition of moving pictures is not licensable if it is incidental to some other entertainment activity which is not itself a description of entertainment. This includes activities which are now exempt. For example, the incidental film exemption can apply to an indoor sporting event or a performance of a play or dance for which no licence is required as long as it take place between 8am-11pm to an audience of the specified amount as such activities are no longer a description of entertainment under the act.
No licence is required for 'not for profit' film exhibition held in community premises between 8am and 11pm on any day provided that the audience does not exceed 500 and the organiser (a) gets the consent to the screening from a person who is responsible for the premises and (b) ensures that each screening abides by age classification rating.
