Cinema & Media Studies: National Film Registry - List & Links

The U.S. Library of Congress has a National Preservation Board which inducts films into a National Film Registry Listing, which began in 1989. The registry aims to "make America's film heritage" available and was established in 1988 through the National Film Preservation Act. More about the registry...

Below we list inducted films by year of production, but you can view them by year of induction here.

Streaming links connect to Franklin for films available through Academic Video OnlineKanopy, and other sources available to current Penn students, faculty, and staff. In other cases, streaming links connect to film archives or museums, YouTube, or the Internet Archive. DVD links connect to Franklin. Please note that some films are available as part of collections on DVDs or as special features, so the title of the DVD may not be the same as the title of the film.
