YALSA'S Fabulous Films Needs Your Nominations!

“I leave you alone for two minutes and the wolves descend.” Twilight

YALSA’s Fabulous Films for Young Adults Committee,, is seeking and watching nominations for what will become YALSA’s 2011 Fabulous Films for Young Adults list of recommended films.

The theme is “Other Times/Other Places”. We are looking for films that are science fiction, fantasy and history and appeal to teens. All types of films are welcome from feature films and documentary to animé.

Current nominated titles:
The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till
Star Trek
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Bedtime Stories
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Terminator Salvation
X-Men Origins: Wolverine

I’ll bet you can think of several titles already. We would love to add movies your teens enjoy watching.

Nominate films,, for review by the selection committee. Please review the selection criteria,, if you have questions about whether a title would be a good nomination.

And, don’t forget…

“…to boldly go where no one has gone before.” Star Trek

Two YA bloggers are on this committee-myself and Drea from Book Blather-and we'd love to see the blogosphere represented and nominate titles! Anyone can nominate, so add your favorite films and give Drea and I some great films to watch and vote for this summer!


  1. I put in my favorite classics: The Princess Bride, The Sandlot, and Hook.

  2. OMG STAR TREK. I love that movie.
    I'm still surprised Twilight is on it, and that Avatar isn't...
    (Wow, wasn't that helpful? Sigh. Sorry.)

  3. I'm not sure I get how Twilight fits the theme, but oh well, I'm not surprised to see it there. But I'm shocked Avatar isn't nominated yet!


I love hearing from other readers! Share your thoughts and chime in!
