In 1995, to celebrate the centenary of cinema, UNESCO worked together with film archives from 49 countries to "compile and publish a list of approximately 15 films each country considers to be representative of its most significant national cinematic heritage." UNESCO suggested that they consider historical importance and cultural/artistic value, but each film archive was allowed to define its own criteria to determine which films were important.

The films of each country are listed in chronological order.

Angola (1-15), Australia (16-31), Austria (32-53), Bolivia (54-68), Brazil (69-85)
Burkina Faso (86-100), Canada (101-113), Chile (114-128), China (129-143), Colombia (144-159)
Ivory Coast (160-173), Czech Republic (174-188), Denmark (189-203), Ecuador (204-214), Egypt (215-229)
Ethiopia (230-243), Finland (244-258), Germany (259-273), Greece (274-308), The Holy See (309-311)
Hungary (312-326), India (327-341), Indonesia (342-356), Ireland (357-374), Israel (375-389)
Italy (390-404), Kazakhstan (405-435), Laos (436-450), Lebanon (451-475), Mexico (476-490)
