Australian Council on Children and the Media

Summer screen selections

Looking for screen content that will be enjoyable and age-appropriate for the children in your care during the Christmas - New Year holidays?

The range of choice has greatly increased. As well as the new releases in cinemas, there are streaming services such as Netflix, the new Disney Plus and others. 

It can be difficult to choose what will suit your child and what might not.

ACCM has developed a guide to what’s on, utilising our database of Know Before You Go reviews developed over the past 17 years. These show age suitability through our traditional red, yellow, green signals.

Where there is no ACCM review, we have provided the Australian Classification and / or information from The Netherlands’ child-development based Kijkwijzer system.

This guide is a “work in progress”, so do check back for more reviews and updated information over these coming weeks.
