National Film Registry Selections

National Film Registry Selections on DVD at KPL

Each year, for over 20 years, the Library of Congress has selected 25 films to be placed in the National Film Registry. Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, the Librarian of Congress names 25 films annually to the National Film Registry that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant, to be preserved for all time. KPL is proud to include many of the newest NFR selections in its DVD collection.
