National Film Registry
The National Film Registry is a department of the United States Library of Congress designed to preserve American-made films (both feature-length films and shorts) that are "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant". In other words, the films that end up in the NFR are the ones that deserve to live forever according to the US government. This is among the highest honors a movie can receive, much higher than even the Academy Awards (and, believe it or not, less politically meddled with).

Twenty-five movies are selected each year for the Registry. To qualify, an entry must be at least ten years old. Members of the public are allowed to suggest up to 50 titles per year for inclusion. Anyone interested in suggesting some worthy titles can do so here.
