Advisory Board, Inc. was founded in 1975 by Elayne Blythe,
President. The Film Advisory Board's (FAB) "Award
of Excellence" is dedicated to awarding and promoting
quality family-oriented and children's entertainment in all
areas, including film, video, TV, CD-Rom, books and music.
The Film Advisory Board "Award of
Excellence" seal is recognized worldwide, and featured
in advertising and packaging for entertainment products suitable
for viewing and use by families and children.
Members of the FAB Award of Excellence Review Committee attend
screenings for all major motion picture studio releases. We
review "R" rated releases, however these films are
not considered for the Award of Excellence as "R"
rated titles are generally not suitable for the entire family.
Products receiving the Award
of Excellence are family-oriented.

The second division of Film Advisory Board, FAB
Rating System, was formed in 1988 at the request of independent
video producers as a more informative and less costly alternative
to the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) rating
system (G,PG,PG-13,R,NC-17), which, until recently, did not
augment its rating categories with content descriptions.
It has always been FAB's belief that consumers should go
into a movie theater aware of what they are about to see and
hear -- and that the same should apply to home video releases.
The FAB Rating System does not censor, we inform.
The FAB's Rating System evaluates and categorizes
films and videos based on their level of maturity. Unlike
the MPAA, we carry an AO, or Adults Only category. If there
are components of gratuitous violence, sex, nudity, substance
abuse, etc., the FAB Rating System so advises, so you can
make an informed choice in selecting entertainment for purchase
