YALSA’s Fabulous Films for Young Adults Committee, http://www.ala.org/yalsa/fabfilms, 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
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
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, http://yalsa.ala.org/forms/fabfilm.php, for review by the selection committee. Please review the selection criteria, http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/yalsa/booklistsawards/fabfilms/fabfilmspolicies.cfm, if you have questions about whether a title would be a good nomination.
And, don’t forget…

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!
