This article's lead section may be too long. Please read the length guidelines and help move details into the article's body. (November 2021)

The British film industry produced over five hundred feature films in 2012. 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 2012.
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 a number of British co-produced films from countries with less established film industries, such as Captive (with the Philippines), Mekong Hotel (with Thailand), Comrade Kim Goes Flying (with North Korea) and The Patience Stone (with Afghanistan).

Of the 133 major British releases of 2012, 59 were co-productions with at least one other country. As with other years, the largest number of co-productions were made with the United States, with 28 films. However, unlike in other years, these did not primarily consist of American-led releases with British technical contributions (although these did exist, most notably in the form of Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rises), but British-led films backed by American funding, the most notable of which are Les Misérables, Skyfall and The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!.
