Getting your films onto IMDB

Hi folks,

Has anyone had any luck getting their own features or shorts listed on IMDB?

I tried to list my recent short film, Tender Words, but got a reply a month later saying the application hadn't been looked at, as 1) I haven't supplied enough info and 2) It's not a high enough priority.

It's been a finalist in a couple of film fests and I've tried to put in as much info as possible... I'm guessing it's a low priority merely cos it's a short film.

Are there any tricks out there for raising the priority and getting it on IMDB?

Thanks, Doug.

Keep trying, Doug.

It took them more effort to send you a letter than it did to put your film up in the database.

It took them a little while, but they finally got my (sole) credit up, and it was a short. (Hey hey, I'm one degree of separation from Napoleon Dynamite. And two away from Luc Besson.)
All the best,
Robert K S

It is extremely slow and difficult if none of your cast or crew have previous credits and are already in the database.

I had to wait well over 6 months before Shadow Girl was listed on imdb. I think what really helps speeding things up is if you can give them links to festival websites mentionning your film and/or online review sites. I have to say I was already listed as AD on imdb which probably also helped.
