This Film Is Not Yet Rated is a 2006 American documentary film about the Motion Picture Association of America's rating system and its effect on American culture, directed by Kirby Dick and produced by Eddie Schmidt. The film premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and was granted a limited theatrical release on September 1, 2006. The film's producer, IFC, aired the film later that year.The project discusses disparities the filmmaker sees in ratings and feedback: between Hollywood and independent films, between homosexual and heterosexual sexual situations, between male and female sexual depictions and between violence and sexual content.The MPAA gave the original cut an NC-17 rating for "some graphic sexual content" – scenes that illustrated the content a film could include to garner such a rating. Dick appealed, and descriptions of the ratings deliberations and appeal were included in the documentary. True to its title, the final cut is not rated.
