To join JAFWA just turn up at one of the meetings and ask the Door Ogres at the entrance for a membership form. Depending on your age there may also be a permission letter to be filled out and signed by your parent/guardian.

The items shown at the screenings are not rated by the Australian Board of Censors. This is due to the fact that these shows are unavailable in Australia. As such, we have classified our shows based on the Australian rating system and the judgment of the JAFWA Board.The items shown at the start of the screening have ‘G’ or ‘PG’ ratings. The later shows have ratings that range from ‘PG’, ‘M’ to ‘MA’.

We rarely show ‘R’ rated material, but when we do, it is done in good taste and is programmed to be the last item for the night. Please note that such shows are clearly marked on our program schedule, and persons under 18 years of age shall be asked to leave before the screening of such material.

Age Group Condition of Entry
Under 12 You can only attend with a responsible guardian-type adult (ie parent or something similar).
12 – 17 You need parental permission to attend the screenings.As proof of parental permission JAFWA issues a ‘Young Adults’ pass, which will be provided upon receipt of a properly filled out permission letter. Once the permission letter is properly filled out bring it with you to a JAFWA meeting to get your ‘Young Adult’ pass.

The permission letter can be obtained from the door ogres at a JAFWA meeting or can printed by selecting the permission letter link.

If you are attending JAFWA for the first time and do not have a permission letter with you we will let you in for that one time but you will be required to provide a properly filled out permission letter the next time you attend a JAFWA meeting.

18 and over Assumed to be “wise enough” to look after themselves, so have no restrictions.
