Changing Genre

Hi there,

I just submitted 3 short films on IMDb. All 3 have SHORT listed as the genre, however 2 of the short films show up under TV specials. How do I change this to a short film instead of TV?

You can submit a title correction (bottom of the edit menu after clicking "Edit page") to change the format from

 Temp (2020) (TV)

to

 Temp (2020)

On the other title you can do the same and also delete "tv-special" from the Keywords section.

Thanks so much. I tried that and it's still listed under past TV and not past VIDEO & FILM.

It may not be processed yet or declined (more likely). Tracking contribution status for title changes is still bugged so we can only guess. Better post your contribution numbers here so an employee can check.

Hi Briana -

I just reviewed both titles and can confirm that they are no longer listed as "TV Specials", they are listed as short films:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12611340/
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12611554/

Cheers!
