The end of 2017 is almost upon us, and as is HeyUGuys’ tradition that means it’s time for YOU – the good people of the online film community – to tell us your favourite films of the year for our annual poll.

Arrival took the top spot in 2016, and before that Mad Max: Fury Road, Boyhood, Gravity, and Skyfall were all crowned the best film of their respective years. 2017 has been a particularly great year for cinephiles (it seems like I’m always saying that), and so it should make for yet another diverse selection of films.

For those of you who are new to this, here’s what you need to know:

UK releases only!: This simply means that films which open in the UK in 2018 such as The Shape Of Water, Phantom Thread, The Post, and Lady Bird are not eligible for your lists. Furthermore, films such as La La Land, Moonlight, A Monster Calls, Manchester By The Sea, and Hidden Figures – all of which opened in the US in 2016 but didn’t arrive in the UK until this year – are fair game. If in doubt, consult the Launching Films website here.

We’ll be watching for this, but we’d appreciate it if you could help us out!

No particular order required: You do not need to go through the trouble of rating your lists 1-10 (because we’re nice like that). Just ensure that you send us your 10 favourites.

How to vote

Submit your lists before 12:00pm on Monday 18th December: Please make sure you send through your lists to with your Twitter handle and the name of your website before midday on Monday 18th December. Alternatively, feel free to DM me on Twitter @awarmann.

In 2016 we had a record number of lists to collate, and we’d love to have even more this year. It’s worth mentioning that there have been times when the poll has come down to ONE VOTE, so please know that your list matters. Don’t be the person who lets The Emoji Movie top the poll because you didn’t submit your list! To that end, we’d appreciate it if you could spread the word on this online as much as possible. Thanks!
