I am looking for Foreign Language films, and would, therefore, like to simply exclude the English Language, as to include every other language there is.

Hi Julian,

I have reached out to our tech team to confirm if we support this specific search function. I will reply with more information once it is available.

Thanks in advance for your patience!

Following up here - we do not support excluding a specific language or region with Advanced Search at this time, so I would recommend searching instead for a specific language rather than trying to exclude English titles.

I apologize for any inconvenience!

Hi Julian,

    This functionality has been added to Advanced Title Search but you need to edit the URL for the search results to use it. What you do is put an '!' character before the item you want to exclude. For your example of excluding English titles, the query URL would be https://www.imdb.com/search/title?languages=!en 

Best regards,
Chris
