Siege is a 1940 documentary short about the Siege of Warsaw by the Wehrmacht at the start of World War II. It was shot by Julien Bryan, a Pennsylvanian photographer and cameraman who later established the International Film Foundation.[1]

Siege was nominated for an Oscar for Best One-reel Short at the 13th Academy Awards in 1941,[2] and in 2006 it was named to the National Film Registry by the Librarian of Congress as "a unique, horrifying record of the dreadful brutality of war".[1]
