How do I change my title from a TV Movie to a Short Film? I listed it incorrectly and want to fix it. I saw a previous person who asked this question and they were given a link to how to change the title, but that was for changing the title itself. I want to keep the title the same, but change the project type itself to a short film. I'm still pretty confused even when looking up help links.

Go to the title's Genres section. In the drop-down menu, click Short.

From the IMDb Help Center Page:
Genres - Short
Any theatrical film or made-for-video title with a running time of less than 45 minutes, i.e., 44 minutes or less, or any TV series or TV movie with a running time of less than 22 minutes, i.e. 21 minutes or less. (A "half-hour" television program should not be listed as a Short.) If known, please submit the running time if we do not have one on record. Objective.

Also, did the project make its debut on TV, in a film festival or streamed over the web? If the title did not premiere on TV, then a title correction is needed.

If the title is stored in the IMDb this way:

Title (year) (TV)

The title will need to be corrected this way:

Title (year)
(Do not include (TV) after the title and year.)
