Vatican Best Films List
The Office for Film and Broadcasting is responsible for reviewing and rating theatrical motion pictures, previewing and evaluating television programming as well as providing the Catholic public with information about the role of the entertainment and news media in influencing societal and personal values.
In recognition of the importance of the videocassette player in the American home, the Office has prepared a volume of capsule reviews assessing the moral and entertainment values of more than 8,000 movies available on television or video. The office also sponsored a "Faith on Film" festival to commemorate the jubilee.
The Office's reviews and ratings of new movies and its evaluations of television and video programming are made widely available through their distribution by the Catholic News Service to the extensive network of Catholic newspapers in the U.S. and to foreign subscribers interested in the American media. Each week's capsule reviews of new movie releases are also available by calling the office's toll-free movieline at 1-800-311-4222.
