Best Films Camera

Everyone has got a movie they absolutely love - tell us what yours is and help us discover Radio 1 and 1Xtra's favourite movie of all time... plus get an invite to a special screening as a thank you!

We want you to tell us what your favourite films of all time are and why you love them. From all the films you suggest in the next few weeks, an expert panel will pick a shortlist of 20 movies, so if you want your favourite film to be on that list, you need to suggest it! You'll then have a chance to vote for which of those 20 should be named as Radio 1 and 1Xtra's favourite movie of all time - we'll celebrate the shortlisted films and reveal the No.1 movie in a series of special programmes in Spring 2011.

To get involved all you need to do is make a short video of yourself telling us who you are, the name of a favourite movie of yours and why you like it. You can contribute your video via facebook, Twitter, or by emailing it to R11Xfavemovies@bbc.co.uk. Here's the good bit - anyone who contributes a video will be invited (with a plus one) to a special movie screening to celebrate the announcement of Radio 1 and 1Xtra's favourite movie.
