Registry Board gets to work

WASHINGTON — The National Film Registry Board met here Monday to begin picking the 25 films that are added each year to the Library of Congress’ preservation list.

Also meeting in Washington is the Film Preservation Foundation, which held its first organization meeting since it officially was organized earlier this year. Among the foundation’s board members are actor Laurence Fishburne and director Martin Scorsese. The foundation’s mission is to raise money for film preservation.

Film registry board members screened movies Monday and will make their recommendations today to Librarian of Congress James Billington. Billington has final say on the registry list and will not make a formal announcement until the fall. Each year since 1988, the Library of Congress has added 25 titles to its list of culturally, historically or aesthetically important films.
