Content Advisory

We acknowledge that our content advisory only covers some of the content that might be concerning to viewers. We encourage the audience to do their own research as well. Common Sense Media and Does the Dog Die are both excellent resources (though not all of the films we present are listed).

If there are any concerns, please reach out to Anna Feder at

In an effort to better serve our community, we indicate films with concerning imagery and themes through our content advisory system. This is an ongoing conversation with our audience that began with a survey that we launched in 2019. Our goal is to accommodate those that have requested this information and respect the wishes of those for whom this information is not needed or wanted.


This advisory will only live here on the Bright Lights website.
