To be considered for the registry, movies must be at least 10 years old. But they do not need to be feature-length or have had a theatrical release.
I was happy to see many of my favorite movies already on the list. It also made me think about what movies I'd like to see added to the registry. Criteria for my picks are movies that I watch over and over. If they have provided me with endless hours of entertainment and if they aren't on the list, they should be added!
