"Citizen Kane," "Casablanca," "The Godfather," "Titanic" and "Lord of the Rings" Among 400 Films to Vie for the Title of Greatest Movie of All Time

AFI'S 100 YEARS... 100 MOVIES -- 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION, a new entertainment special counting down the 100 greatest movies of all time, will be broadcast on Wednesday, June 20 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. During the broadcast, the confidential list of the 100 greatest movies will be revealed by some of Hollywood's biggest stars. The program will consider classic favorites and newly eligible films released from 1996 to 2006. AFI has previously announced it will now undertake this as a decade-by-decade program to mark changing cultural perspectives.

This will be the 10th annual special in the AFI's continuing celebration of American cinema, following the nine critically-acclaimed Network specials: "AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movies," "...100 Stars," "...100 Laughs," "...100 Thrills," "...100 Passions," "...100 Heroes & Villains," "...100 Songs," "...100 Movie Quotes" and "...100 Cheers" which annually spark a national discussion of America's film history among movie lovers across the nation.

AFI distributed a ballot with the names of 400 nominated movies to a jury of over 1,500 leaders in the creative community, including film artists (directors, screenwriters, actors, editors, cinematographers), critics and historians.

The jurors have been asked to consider the following criteria in making their selections:

FEATURE-LENGTH FICTION FILM

Narrative format, typically over 60 minutes in length.

AMERICAN FILM

Motion picture with significant creative and/or production elements from the United States.

CRITICAL RECOGNITION

Formal commendation in print, television and digital media.

MAJOR AWARD WINNER

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE

A film's mark on the history of the moving image through visionary narrative devices, technical innovation or other groundbreaking achievements.

CULTURAL IMPACT

A film's mark on American society in matters of style and substance.

AFI allows five write-in votes per ballot.
