We contacted you because our title managers have already examined your title, but there was not enough information to show it is eligible for a listing on IMDb. The data is being held until you are able to send us more information to help verify the title. The more information which is supplied for a title, the easier it is for us to process, verify and add it.
A reminder that the eligibility rules are described on the new title submission page. In order to add your title, we need evidence that it meets our criteria for inclusion as described on that page. For feature films/shorts/etc this generally means either a theatrical release open to the public, a screening at a qualifying selective/competitive film festival or a showing on non-local TV. For made for video titles and video games this means distribution by an established retailer (self or online distribution does not qualify by itself). For made for TV titles including TV series, TV movies and pilots this means a broadcast on a non-local TV station. Additionally we do include some titles which are not yet complete, but such listings are only accepted on the basis of an established high profile track record of previously produced eligible titles already in IMDb (more details).
You have been directed to this page because we were unable to determine whether your title was eligible from the information originally provided. Here's how to proceed in the more common cases:
If you still believe your title is eligible for a listing now, please return to your update history and locate the original submission. Clicking the reference number will reload the form and you should try and provide as much additional information as possible, bearing the above points in mind.
To clarify further: We are not trying to answer the question "does your title exist?" we are trying to answer the question "does it meet our listing criteria?" (specifically, why is it of interest to the general public -- people other than the cast/crew/friends?) The data you send needs to address these questions directly, and if you can't express it in the data for some reason, please explain in the optional explanatory comment section.
In a small number of cases it is possible that your title has already been added to the IMDb through another submission by someone else using a slightly different spelling or with different year of release. Please search IMDb first to make sure this has not happened. If your title is present, please use the "Update" button on the title's main page on IMDb to add any missing information.
The new supporting data needs to be supplied via the IMDb additions interface in order to be considered alongside that submitted previously. To send more information, please return to your update history and locate the original submission. Clicking the reference number will reload the form and you should try and provide as much additional information as possible.
For other questions on the submission process we recommend visiting the IMDb Get Satisfaction community board. A final reminder that the more data you submit for your title, the easier and faster it is for us to verify the existence and eligibility.
