Nominate your favorite film to be preserved

Now is the time to nominate your favorite film to be digitally transferred and included in the National Film Preservation Board (NFPB), a project of the Library of Congress.   To nominate a film, visit http://www.loc.gov/film/index.html

According to the NFPB, its primary mission is to :

"save orphan films — those without owners able to pay for their preservation. The films most at-risk are newsreels, silent films, experimental works, films out of copyright protection, significant amateur footage, documentaries, and features made outside the commercial mainstream. Orphan films are the living record of the twentieth century."

Once selected, the NFPB works to conducts the film transfer and make them accessible to present and future generations of Americans.

In 2010, 25 films were added to the registry, including "All the President's Men," "The Pink Panther" and "Cry of Jazz."
