Life is like a Box of Preserved Films. Thanks to the National Film Preservation Act, every year the Library of Congress adds 25 films that are culturally, historically or aesthetically significant to its National Film Registry to help document our history and culture and reflect our hopes and dreams. In 2011, films from genres across the board were added to the registry, from the likes of Forrest Gump (1994) to Bambi (1942). This year, you can help determine which films are preserved by sending your recommendations to the Librarian of Congress and the National Film Preservation Board (NFPB). Nominate Your Favorite Movie.
