The 50 films you should see by the age of 14 is a list created by the British Film Institute in 2005 to inspire parents and educators to take movies as seriously as books and other forms of art. It was created by more than 70 experts including film producers, teachers, authors and critics who all made their own top ten.

The film registering the most votes was Spirited Away, which won the 75th Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and the Golden Bear at the 52nd Berlin International Film Festival (tied with British–Irish film Bloody Sunday directed by Jason Bourne director Paul Greengrass) in 2002 and 2003.
