I tried to correct the Country of Origin for my film "Omar" to Palestine and it was rejected, citing that Palestine does not exist as of 2013. Explanation: The Production Company for Omar is Palestine based. The initial country entry was a clerical error from our Sales Company. Our latest attempt to make the correction said that Palestine does not exist as of 2013. However, there are several films listed on imdb dating back to 1947 that have Palestine listed as country of Origin. http://pro.imdb.com/search/simple?cou...

It looks like the IMDb allows Occupied Palestinian Territory.

I don't know for what year range they'll currently allow Palestine.

If you try to add Palestine to the recent titles at your link (for example, Ish lelo selolari (2010)) it tells you that Palestine isn't valid for 2010 - even though that title already has Palestine listed. So apparently the IMDb fairly recently decided that Palestine was no longer valid for a certain time period but didn't retroactively clean up titles that didn't meet their new requirement.
