The mission of movie and television review and classification board as a regulatory board, aims to afford the public exhibitions of movie and television with the purpose of encouraging production of globally competitive movies or exhibitions, which should be both entertaining and artistic, in order to raise the standard of art for the general public. The objective of this study is to determine the level of knowledge and awareness on movie and television review and classification board advisories among children in the Philippines. Using 52 grade four students in the department of Basic Education, University of Perpetual Help System Laguna who were purposively selected, the study utilised descriptive-correlational research method. The results revealed a high level of knowledge and awareness of the respondents on movie and television review and classification board advisories. When grouped according to gender, religion and TV viewing companion, the respondents’ level of knowledge and awareness on movie and television review and classification board advisories showed no significant difference. Likewise, it was found that their knowledge and awareness on movie and television review and classification board advisories were not significantly related.
