‘Back To The Future’ among films to be preserved

Marty McFly, a dozen angry men and UFOs are just a few of the newest additions to the U.S. National Film Registry.

The Library of Congress has chosen this year’s 25 "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant films to be preserved for all time, among them the 1985 Michael J. Fox-starring comedy "Back To The Future," the 1957 jury drama "12 Angry Men" and Steven Spielberg’s 1977 classic "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

"We’re always a little short on the science fiction genre, and this year we wanted to get more entries from the 1970s," said Stephen Leggett, National Film Preservation Board staff director.

The new additions bring the total of films preserved in the Registry to 475.

Films are selected based on their artistry, their historical significance or their reflection of American culture.

Films must be at least ten years old to be eligible.
