LIBRARY ADDS 25 NEW FILMS TO FILM REGISTRY; CELEBRATES 30TH YEAR!

This morning, the Library of Congress announced its latest additions to the National Film Registry.  Marking its 30th anniversary this year, the National Film Registry, which honors films that are historically, culturally or aesthetically significant, now totals 750 American-made films.  Selections are made by the Librarian of Congress with input from the Library’s National Film Preservation Board and reviewing nominations from the public.

This year’s selections include:  “Smoke Signals” (1998); “Cinderella” (1950); “My Fair Lady” (1964); and “The Shining” (1980), among others.
