Films about Cinema

A Useful Life is out on DVD this week, so we decided to create a list of our favourite intertextual and metafilms. Can you think of any other films about cinemas, projectionists or filmmaking?

Tweet us @dogwoof your suggestions and the best 3 will win a copy of the film on DVD.

And if you are a fan of films about films then we have another one coming up later this year - Even the Rain will hit cinemas on May 18th...
