What images from New Zealand cinema most stick in your mind?

Now is your chance to decide on the best New Zealand films of all time.

Fairfax Media is conducting a poll of film-makers, critics and the public to find the 50 best New Zealand films of all time.

You can vote for your 10 favourite Kiwi films online at movies.interactives.co.nz.

Hundreds of people have already voted in the nationwide poll and there are now only four days left to vote. So far, about 170 films have been named in the poll. They range from 1927 to the present day and include everything from fantasy to horror, social realism to comedy, and documentary to animation.

The poll comes after online film industry showcase, NZ On Screen, earlier this month named its 10 favourite Kiwi movies of all time.

You can vote in the poll here.

NZ On Screen content director Irene Gardiner said the poll was a chance to debate and celebrate Kiwi film.
"It is a way to have an interesting conversation about New Zealand film and celebrate what we have made," she said.

"We have made a lot of great films. We do well internationally for a small country and we like that about ourselves."
The 10 films chosen by NZ On Screen were Goodbye Pork Pie, Smash Palace, Utu, Vigil, The Piano, Heavenly Creatures, Once Were Warriors, Whale Rider, In My Father's Den, Boy.

Films that just missed out on being included in the NZ On Screen top 10 were given "honourable mentions".

Those films were Don't Let it Get You, Death Warmed Up, Footrot Flats, The World's Fastest Indian, Came a Hot Friday, Rain, The Quiet Earth, Sleeping Dogs, Ngati, and Illustrious Energy.
