UK-British Films


The British Film Industry and its studios have created a number of memorable films, many of which have won Academy Award Oscars. Many films have been jointly produced by US and UK studios. Throughout all of film history, British films have played an important role. A few Australian films are also included in the greatest films indexes. Early in 1999, the British Film Institute asked 1,000 people - embracing all strands of the film, cinema and television industries throughout the UK - producers, directors, writers, actors, technicians, academics, exhibitors, distributors, executives and critics - to consider (and vote for up to 100) 'culturally British' feature films, released in cinemas during the 20th century, which they felt had made a strong and lasting impression. The BFI published a tally of the votes, resulting in the 100 Favorite British Films of the 20th Century, all of which are found in this list, with their ranking number.
