From the YALSA Website:
Philosophy and Purpose: YALSA believes that access to library collections which reflect young adult interests and needs is essential and that multimedia formats are necessary to accommodate varied interests. The Fabulous Films for Young Adults List is tangible evidence of YALSA’s recognition of the belief that moving images play an important role in the life of a young adult. The purpose of this list is to identify for collection developers a body of films relating to a theme that will appeal to young adults in a variety of settings.
Selection criteria consistent with the Library Bill of Rights shall be applied throughout the selection process. Titles chosen are of acceptable quality and are effective in their presentation. Titles will be selected to appeal to young adults with varied tastes and interests.
