Through the collective judgment of 1,500 leaders from across the American film community - screenwriters, directors, actors, producers, cinematographers, editors, executives, film historians and critics -, AFI has identified 100 movies which set the standard and mark the excellence of the first century of American cinema. The first version of the list only contained films that were made in the first 100 years of American cinema (1896-1996). However, this list is the updated version.
