Every year the Librarian of Congress picks 25 American-made films to be added to its National Film Registry. While the final decision is that of the Librarian of Congress, with some considered input from the Library’s National Film Preservation Board, the public is also invited to offer their suggestions and we’re accepting those emails NOW!
The criteria: the film must be American made, at least 10 years old and at least one copy must exist somewhere. The films should also be aesthetically, culturally or historically important.
Films can be of any genre: comedy, silent, dramas, documentaries, experimental, westerns, musical, horror, sci-fi, animation,…
You can nominate up to 50 films per year. To see what’s already on the Registry, click here.

Happy nominating and GOOD LUCK!
