Another year has almost come to a close, and that means it’s time for the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress to add 25 more movies to their archive that protects and preserves “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films.”

This year, there seems to be a concerted effort to better represent a more diverse slate of films rather than common beloved classics. While there are entries like Clerks, Platoon and Sleeping Beauty, this year’s entries also include the LGBTQ documentary Before Stonewall, the true story Boys Don’t Cry, and even an old recording of immigrants arriving fresh off the boat at Ellis Island in New York City.
