NOMINATE YOUR FAVORITE FILMS FOR THE 2021 NATIONAL FILM REGISTRY
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS SEPTEMBER 15, 2021
The Library of Congress invites you to submit your recommendations for the 2021 National Film Registry.
Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act of 1988, the Librarian of Congress, with advice from the National Film Preservation Board, annually selects 25 titles that are deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant, and are at least 10 years old.
Public nominations play a key role when the Librarian and the National Film Preservation Board are considering their final selections.
We strongly encourage the recommendation of a full range of American films, including Hollywood classics, silent era titles, documentaries, educational and industrial movies, as well as films representing the vibrant diversity of cultures and influences of filmmakers: producers, directors, writers, actors, actresses, cinematographers, composers, and other crafts.
Not sure if your favorite films are already on the Registry?
Here is the current list of the 800 motion pictures already selected.
A compilation of some films not yet named to the Registry can be found here.
You may nominate up to 50 films through the online nomination form. Deadline is September 15, 2021.
