How can you add an award and nominations to your film page? I have been selected at LAShorts Fest, Montreal Festival du Mondes and Rhode Island International Film Festival where the film won Director's Choice Award First Prize

For films that have been selected to screen at a film festival you can add the screening date to the Release Date section.

If your film wins or is nominated for an award and the event is listed here - http://www.imdb.com/event/all - you may be able to add the award as well.

The page for the Rhode Island Film Festival is here: http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000551/. You can click on the "Edit page" button and fill out the form.

If your film wins an award at a festival and the festival is not listed on the IMDb Event page then you can add the information as a Trivia item on the film's page.

Our film CUT! just won 4 awards at Indie Fest  (http://www.theindiefest.com) and I would like to add it to the page and give credit, but I don't think that it is listed (or I'm not sure why it wouldn't be listed). The festival has been around since 2008. Any ideas on getting these added.  I would rather it not just be listed as trivia.  Thank you so much for the help.

David: IMDb started accepting new awards events again in November 2013, for the first time in seven years. See http://www.imdb.com/board/bd0000042/nest/222024221 for an explanation of how to submit a new awards event to the database.

However, there is a long backlog of events to be added, so I would recommend submitting Indie Fest as a new event now, and then expecting to wait for a while before it is actually added.

A film of mine was nominated this year for Best Animation at one of the festivals in your list but clicking on the event brings up information only for 2016 and not 2017. How can I add this award to the page? Also, how do I handle awards given many years ago to another film of mine on iMDb? Thank you.

John,

To add an award given in 2017, you can start at the 2016 listing for that event, click the edit feature at the bottom and edit the year in the form.

Thank you. The  2017 nomination data have been submitted. The remaining question involves awards given a much earlier film for which current websites might not exist. May I supply iMDb .jpgs of documents confiming the awards?

I think that would work if you upload the documents somewhere and include a link in the form. If all else fails, you can post here in a new topic.

Thank you for your response. I would like to add three Awards/Nominations items for my film "B'raesheet" (1973). These are for festivals not presently listed among the iMDb Awards Page events.

The first is the first round of Student Academy Awards, where the film was one of three finalists nationwide nominated for Best Animation.

The film also won the President of Japan Foundation at the 1st Annual Hiroshima Amateur Film Festival and won First Prize in Animation at the 12th Annual Independent Filmmakers Festival. Documentation of all three is provided and accessible here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4rmjdgc23iffw3a/AABWyP0e2rsL6Z2vBRM2u1uBa?dl=0

Please let me know if there's anything left to do to get these on the page for "B'raesheet" (1973).  Thank you.
