Abstract

in English, German

AIM:

 To study the frequency of smoking in movies nominated for the German movie award during 2016 - 2018; testing the association between movies depicting smoking and their age rating.

METHODS:

 All movies (n = 61) nominated for the German movie awards ("Lolas") between 2016 and 2018 were content coded according to whether or not they portrayed smoking. The age rating of the movies according to the Voluntary Self Regulation Body of the Movie Industry (FSK) was also recorded.

RESULTS:

 53 of 61 movies (87 %) portrayed smoking. There was no association between smoking in movies and FSK age rating (p = 0.166). Smoking was shown in all 16 movies with no age restrictions (FSK-0).

CONCLUSIONS:

 Smoking was depicted quite often in movies nominated for the German movie award. Increasing the FSK age rating for films that portray smoking would decrease the exposure of smoking in films to youth and would be in line with recommendations of the World Health Organization.
