Once Again, More Indies Needed In The National Film Registry

By Ted Hope

It’s that time of year again.  The National Film Registry just got 25 more films.  Like the last two years, it only gives a nod to indies.  What people seem to forget is that we, the people, can make recommendations as to what gets listed.  How great would it be if every reader of this blog wrote in and recommended an indie film?  There’s no charge for this blog, no pay wall to avoid, so how about that for a subscription fee: you have to nominate a film to the National Film Registry?

The Librarian of Congress provides some guidelines on what to nominate for next year’s registry at the Film Board’s website at www.loc.gov/film. To be eligible for the Registry, a film must be at least 10 years old and be “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”  I list my recommended films on last year’s post.  My list is not changing this year.

To nominate films, send up to fifty titles to:

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
