My nominations for National Film Registry 2021 (longlist)

Every December, 25 movies are inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, who encourages the public to nominate movies they deem "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant" for the Registry. A movie must be at least 10 years old to be considered. For the third year now, I've been submitting 50 movies (the maximum) per year to the Registry - they clearly take the public vote seriously, as two films I nominated made it in last time, and maybe 3 the year before that.

The nominations close September 15, 2021 and the link to nominate movies is here: www.loc.gov/programs/national-film-preservation-board/film-registry/nominate/
