Members’ poll results

The votes are in and are being counted… Never mind Obama v Romney, it’s our members’ poll of the top ten Greatest Films Ever Made! (I feel like the editor of Smash Hits.)

Here is an early entry from our most junior members Kate (aged 6) and Alistair (8):

From our screening of Vertigo (the BFI 2012 poll’s number 1), we had 23 completed voting slips. This included 183 films, from popular classics to rarities to obscure ones that I’ve never heard of.

Without further ado, here are the collated results:

=2: It’s A Wonderful Life (Frank Capra 1946)
=2: Pan’s Labyrinth (Guillermo Del Toro 2006)
