This list is "an educational resource that offers guidance and encouragement as students seek to find points of orientation within the vast history of film and video." It is not a list of the best films of all time. Rather, it reflects a variety of criteria.

The list is divided into 6 sections:
I. Narrative Films
Hollywood Genres (with an emphasis on the classical studio era)
II. Non-Fiction Films
III. Animated Films
IV. Experimental/Avant-garde/Underground Films
V. Videos
VI. Video Installations (this section can't be added to iCM because IMDb doesn't list video installations)

This list combines the first 5 sections into a single list. 5 of the films are included in 2 sections, but they are listed only once on this iCM list.
