"This is an exciting moment in American film history," said AFI Director and CEO Jean Picker Firstenberg. "As the end of this century approaches and we reflect on its defining achievements, among the most powerful and successful is, without question, the motion picture. Through the collective judgment of leaders from across the American film community, from both in front of and behind the camera, AFI has identified 100 movies which set the standard and mark the excellence of the first century of American cinema. Movies are an intensely personal experience, and it's certain that this list will generate a broad range of opinion and discussion. AFI welcomes this dialogue and hopes to achieve an increased regard, respect and appreciation for this great American art form."
