As ever, a variety of unforgettable flicks are eligible for the award. from the hilarious Huge to taut thriller Cherry Tree Lane.

Past winners include Amélie, We Are Together and last year's The Secret of Kells, which went on to be nominated for an Oscar. Just shows what great taste you have!

To cast your vote, simply head along to a screening, grab a ballot paper and tear off a corner to rate the film.
