AFI's 100 Years – 100 Thrills

The American Film Institute will on Tuesday June 12, 2001 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. on CBS present their “America’s 100 most heart-pounding movies” list. You can take part and vote at AFI’s public “America’s 100 most heart-pounding movies” list.
AFI’s “100 Years… 100 Thrills” celebrates these heart-pounding movies and the artistic pulse behind them. The list will be presented on CBS, 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m, June 12, 2001 and the program will be hosted by Harrison Ford (Wouldnt we like to see him presenting Blade Runner with a smile ?..). The list will also be available the following day at the AFI’s website. On the website you will also find their criteria, which is considered for a movie which will be on their list.
Recognizing the subjective and historical nature of “thrills” and the cinematic techniques used to create them, AFI has compiled this ballot with the goal of being as inclusive as possible. The following criteria should be considered in all selections, including write-in candidates:
Narrative format, typically over 60 minutes in length.
English language film with significant creative and/or financial production elements from the United States.
Regardless of genre, the total adrenaline-inducing impact of a film’s artistry and craft, creating an experience that engages our bodies as well as our minds.
Films whose “thrills” stand the test of time — enlivening and enriching America’s film heritage, while inspiring contemporary artists and audiences.
So, visit their website and create your own top 10 list AND help creating the public’s top ten (Remember to vote for Blade Runner).
