25 films chosen for inclusion on the National Film Registry were officially announced on December 18. Every year, films are chosen by the Library of Congress for preservation.“The National Film Registry stands among the finest summations of more than a century of extraordinary American cinema,” said Librarian of Congress James H. Billington. “This key component of American cultural history, however, is endangered, so we must protect the nation’s matchless film heritage and cinematic creativity.”

Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the Librarian of Congress names 25 films to the National Film Registry that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant. The films must be at least 10 years old. The Librarian makes the annual registry selections after reviewing hundreds of titles nominated by the public and conferring with Library film curators and the distinguished members of the National Film Preservation Board.

Here is the list of 2013 inductees. The oldest is a silent film called ‘A Virtuous Vamp’ from 1919. The most recent is 2002′s ‘Decasia.’ How many of these movies have you seen?
