I seem to remember that Samantha in Sex & the City had a Filofax… sorry, I have no idea which episode but it’s stuck in the back of my memory!
Loved this post
Awesome list!! Have seen a commercial several times this week where making appointments is mentioned and on a girls desk is her opened ring planner…looks to be A5 or Classic size. It’s an insurance company commercial I believe. Will try to catch it next week and get more info.
There’s an old Lifetime movie from 1995 called Body Language starring Heather Locklear. You can view it on Youtube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPUGa09wpZ8
She carries a red ringed binder that I spotted at 5:08 (when she’s taking it out of her briefcase) then from 53:27 – 53:40 (in her hands and on desk) then from 54:15-16 (in her hands)
Sorry – it’s from 1992!
At least two planners are in Clear and Present danger about halfway through- a tapestry one and a pocket sized one. One was during the computer hack scene.
There is an episode of the British TV programme Dalziel and Pascoe where an evil person burns a Filofax to hide the evidence. You see it a few times first.
Brilliant list though. 😀
This list is awesome! Do you know what’s that organizer in the white collar screenshot? Thanks!!
I don’t, sadly 🙁
It’s okay. 🙂
Anyway, you should also add the tv movie Lucky 7. The lead character used a filofax throughout the film 🙂
There is a Taiwanese drama on Netflix called Just You that also showcases a ring planner.
Thanks for that – will add!
Since the title had films in it, I was worried Supernatural would go unlisted. So glad to see it there.
Wow, what a list. I need to watch New Best Friend, and many others.
Oceans Eleven (Birkin carries an A5 in red or pink for almost the entire movie).
And let’s not forget the first (original! – not that terrible American remake) film of the Millenium trilogy where Erica pops out her Filofax to pay the taxi driver!
Obviously it’s Ellen Barkin, not Birkin! Found a picture!

I cannot see the pic Jotje. Could you email it to me at janet.carrATgmail.com? Thank you!
Wow – kudos for all the hard work and time you put in compiling this. 27 Dresses is my favorite ‘filofax’ movie, but I need to check out ‘New Best Friend’ about solving a murder using the victim’s filo. I need to bookmark this post. Thank you!
27 dresses was amazing, right up until (spoiler)
the guy gives her a blackberry. AND SHE TAKES IT
Working Girl is another movie where a filofax features very centrally in the story. So there was a movie ‘Filofax’ where the lead character is a planner-nerd who uses a 30mm Winchester.
Isn’t there a filofax on “Dead Like Me” tv show? I thought one of the character’s was using what looked like a malden … or something a little older.
I was just coming to post that one. It’s on Hulu now.

Who makes that I wonder?
Great list of films though.
Check Etsy. There are Chinese sellers with 9 ring planners there.
Wow! I had spotted a few of those but had no idea there were so many. Very cool.
Yes there are loads and the list is growing all the time!
Oh Janet, Thanks for this!
Somethings’ Gotta Give is one of my all time favorites and Filofaxes are seen all over the beach house. I like how she even has a smaller pale blue one on her nightstand.
Gene Simmons of KISS is also an avid Filofax user. On an episode of his family’s reality show “Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels” he is seen going thru his schedule in his Filofax. That was pretty cool to watch.
Glad you like it Michelle – and the Kiss one I must try to find a piccie of!
