[Movies] Pulp Fiction and Mary Poppins Selected By National Film Registry
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.18.2013



Coming Soon reports that the Library of Congress has announced its annual list of 25 films joining the National Film Registry, including Pulp Fiction, Mary Poppins, The Magnificent Seven and Forbidden Planet.

The National Film Registry preserves films deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" to the country's "cinematic heritage".

James H. Billington, the Librarian of Congress, said: "The National Film Registry stands among the finest summations of more than a century of extraordinary American cinema. This key component of American cultural history, however, is endangered, so we must protect the nation's matchless film heritage and cinematic creativity."

The library includes films from 1919 to 2002 and includes all kinds of films ranging several different genres and including documentaries, silent films, independent, classics and experimental movies. Including this year's list, the total number of films is 625 with the Library's moving-image collection at 1.2 million. The films selected for the Registry must be at least ten years old. The Librarian selects the films after reviewing titles nominated by the public and working with Library film curators and the National FIlm Preservation Board.
