Your voice is important!

The Librarian of Congress invites you to submit your recommendations for movies to be included on the National Film Registry. Public nominations play a key role when the Librarian and Film Board are considering their final selections.

To be eligible for the Registry, a film must be at least 10 years old and be “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” View more information on the Registry here.
