It's that time of the year!

Send in your film title suggestions to the LOC for the National Film Registry 2018 selections; the deadline for nominations is September 15, 2018. Please remember that all nominated films must be at least ten years old. Public nominations play a vital role in the selection of titles to add each year.

Don't forget to check current movie trends in Hollywood when you do send in your film titles as this can also influence films selected for the registry.

The nomination form is at the link below:

My top two choices for inclusion:

WAY DOWN EAST (1920) Directed by D.W. Griffith and starring Lillian Gish, Richard Barthelmess, and Lowell Sherman. Box-office smash hit that features one of the most famous finales in film, with Gish floating down river on an ice floe.

WHEN KNIGHTHOOD WAS IN FLOWER (1922) Directed by Robert G> Vignola and starring Marion Davies, Forrest Stanley, and William Powell. Box-office smash  that stars Davies in her breakthrough role as Mary Tudor in historical drama that features plenty of action and humor.

You can suggest literally ALL kinds of films (newsreels, home movies, sport casts, experimental films, etc.) as long as it is culturally and/or artistically significant as far as American film history is concerned.  That was how the Zapruder film got into the registry.  The only kind of films not eligible are lost films, since the registry requires a physical copy of each film to be put in the Library of Congress.
