Via Dino Manrique, I found this proposed bill for the Philippine Congress on the internet. I think a section in this bill is interesting and should be applied to the controversial new Thai law about film ratings and censorship, too.

" Provided, That screenings and programs of tertiary level academic institutions, governmental cultural institutions, and non-governmental cultural institutions and establishments such as but not limited to art bars, art galleries, festivals, museums, churches, or by individuals, organizations, societies, clubs, groups, or associations for educational, documentary, cultural, scientific, political, news programs, civic, cause-oriented, industrial, sales, public relations and instructional films in venues for non-regular theatrical distribution shall be free from any review by, and registration with, the Board: Provided further, That the said institutions and establishments shall observe self-regulation."
