Nominate Your Favorite Films for Preservation

The Library of Congress is encouraging people to nominate films to add to the National Film Registry, a “list of films deemed ‘culturally, historically or aesthetically significant’ that are earmarked for preservation.”   To be eligible for the list, a film must be at least 10 years old.  The guidelines for nominating are available from LC.

The newly announced list of films added to the Registry in 2013 include among others “Mary Poppins,” “Pulp Fiction,” “The Quiet Man,” “The Right Stuff,” and “Roger and Me.”  Wouldn’t they make a great film series in the library this winter?
