The National Film Registry (NFR) is the United States National Film Preservation Board's (NFPB) selection of movies that are believed in need to be preserved because they are very good. The NFPB, created by the National Film Preservation Act of 1988, was reauthorized by acts of Congress in 1992, 1996, 2005, and again in October 2008.[1][2][3] The mission is to keep the American cinema heritage alive and safe.[4]
