List of British films of 2011

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Video-x-generic.svg This film-related list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

The British film industry produced over four hundred feature films in 2011. This article fully lists all non-pornographic films, including short films, that had a release date in that year and which were at least partly made by the United Kingdom. It does not include films first released in previous years that had release dates in 2011.
Also included is an overview of the major events in British film, including film festivals and awards ceremonies, as well as lists of those films that have been particularly well received, both critically and financially. The year was particularly notable for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, the final instalment in the Harry Potter film franchise.
