Here’s to an even better 2018!
Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden has announced the 2017 selections to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. “Spanning the period 1905 to 2000, the films named to this year’s registry include Hollywood blockbusters, documentaries, silent movies, animation, shorts and independent and home movies. The 2017 selections bring the number of films in the registry to 725, which is a small fraction of the Library’s vast moving-image collection of 1.3 million items.” — LOC Blog
