National Film Registry Additions for 2014

It’s that time of year again where the National Film Preservation Board has made its annual announcement of which films are being added to The National Film Registry.

For those unfamiliar with the project, each year up to 25 films are selected for preservation in the Library of Congress.  Each film must be at least 10-years-old, they do not have to be feature length and they do not have to have received a theatrical release.

This year’s list includes:

It makes me oddly happy of only seen nine of this year’s 25 selections. First of all it gives me more to watch, and two it means they really are trying to preserve film and not just what was popular. Considering the way movies are going these days, I’d much rather dig into the films on this list I haven’t seen.

Any movies on the list that confuse you? The press release below includes a section of why each film was chosen.

You can send in up to 50 films for the 2015 list, get to it folks! Before you do, however, make sure your choices are not already in the registry.

You can also check out the additions for 2006200720082009201020112012 and 2013.
