What a Grade A by CEB means
The CEB grades the movies to determine whether a film is worthy of tax incentives or not.
The Cinema Evaluation System is based on but not limited to the following elements of filmmaking: direction, screenplay, cinematography, editing, production design, music score, sound, and performance.
When a film is Graded A or B, the producer gets an incentive equivalent to the amusement tax collected on the graded films.
Graded A films, as in the case of “Jack Em Popoy: The PulisCredibles”, gets 100% of the amusement tax collected for the movie.
Graded B films gets 65% of the amusement tax collected on the film and the 35% goes to the funds of the Council.
