The National Film Registry is the United States National Film Preservation Board's selection of films for preservation in the Library of Congress. The Board was established in 1988. Each year, 25 "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films" are preserved, to increase awareness for its preservation. To be eligible for inclusion, a film must be at least ten years old but it is not required to be feature-length, nor is it required to have been theatrically released.

The top 300 best silent era films are based on the votes on the silentera.com website. The list is not limited to features exclusively. True silent films (like City Lights) not made in the default silent cinema timeline (1891-1929) are also accepted. Films receiving votes must still exist somewhere and in some viewable form. We limit the list to films that were produced to be silent films exclusively (synchronized music tracks are acceptable, but part-talkies and talkies that have only survived as silents are out).

The Story of Film: An Odyssey, a 15-part series written and directed by award-winning film-maker Mark Cousins, is the story of international cinema told through the history of cinematic innovation.
The series provides a worldwide guided tour of the greatest movies ever made; an epic tale that starts in nickelodeons and ends as a multi-billion-dollar globalised digital industry."

Note: "Motion Capture Mirrors Emotion (2009) dir. Jorge Ribas," a documentary about the making of Avatar, is missing because it does not appear to have an imdb page.

Honorable Mention: In February, 1914 at the Palace Theatre in Chicago, Illinois, cartoonist Winsor McCay (1869-1934) premiered "Gertie the Dinosaur", (containing 10,000 drawings with backgrounds), in an interactive cartoon where he (in person) seemed to step into his animated cartoon by walking behind the screen at the right time and showing up as part of the animation. Many consider this the first 'successful' animated cartoon (others being considered just novelty acts).

In November, 1914, "Gertie the Dinosaur" was released to theaters around the country, being the first animated film viewed by movie goers at the time.

It generated a significant amount of notice and discussion at the time, and is still commonly cited.
