Consolidated List of all AFI Films

The American Film Institute (AFI) released several lists of top films from 1998 through the late 2000s. The nature of the films is such that some showed up on more than one list, which means that the total number of films across all of AFI's movie-specific lists is 412.

For the record, the following nine lists were consolidated:
