Established by the National Film Preservation Act of 1988, the National Film Preservation Board works to ensure the survival, conservation and increased public availability of America’s film heritage, including: advising the Librarian on its recommendations for annual selections to the National Film Registry, apprising the Librarian of changing trends and policies in the field of film preservation, and counseling the Librarian on ongoing implementation of the National Film Preservation Plan.
The National Film Registry selects 25 films each year showcasing the range and diversity of American film heritage to increase awareness for its preservation. (Source: Library of Congress, National Film Registry).
My good friend, and co-author on two novels and a screenplay, is the author of COCOON. Once again the list of films going to the National Film Registry, and IT DOES NOT INCLUDE COCOON. For any of you whom have seen COCOON, please nominate it via e-mail to:
dross@loc.gov
In the e-mail please write “I would like to nominate Cocoon, 1985 released by 20th Century Fox, for inclusion in the National Film Registry.”
I’ve sent my e-mail and I encourage all of you to do the same.
