Last year, British filmmaker Charlie Lyne launched a Kickstarter with the aim of protesting censorship in British film. Prior to a film's release in British cinemas, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) must watch and rule on a film, and the BBFC has the power to censor and ban films.

Lyne decided to work within the system for his punishing protest. He raised £5,936 to submit a movie for BBFC consideration.
