Begun in 2007, Doubling the Canon is an annual project which aims to expand the Film Canon as crafted by the They Shoot Pictures, Don't They website. Originally it was a selection of 1000 movies to complement the TSPDT Top 1000, now it is a list of 1,000-1,250 which complements both the all time Top 1000 and the companion TSPDT Top 1000 of the 21st century.

This project is compiled and voted on by cinephiles from around the globe every year, originally at Imdb's Classic Film Board and currently at, in the months after the posting of that year's TSPDT list.
