The Hall of Film

Annually, the Fake Geeks team pore over all of the films released in the UK in a calendar year and, in between squabbling over whether Her is an average/good/great film (delete as applicable), we produce our personalised top fifteens. These top fifteens are amalgamated to produce our collective top twenty. The film that finishes at #1 is our Fake Geeks Film of the Year, and earns a spot in the Fake Geeks Hall of Fame Film.

At the time of writing, we have currently only updated the HoF for each year as we have passed it. Down the line we hope to take a look back at previous years and build up the HoF library.

A note on the years of eligibility

To qualify for consideration, the film must have had a UK public release within that particular calendar year. Please note, ‘festival debuts’ do not count. For example, 12 Years a Slave was released in the US in 2013, and had its UK debut at the BFI London Film Festival in October of that year. However, the UK public did not actually get to see it until 10th January 2014 (its general/wide release date), making it a 2014 release for our purposes.
