General Information

You have so much information! Where should I start?

The menu bar located at the top of every page at IMDb has links to our main site features. All our pages also include a search box to quickly locate any movie, TV show or person.

  • We also have a very comprehensive index with an alphabetical list of the most popular features available. If you are not sure of what you are looking for, you can also browse titles by genre or keyword.



  • If you are looking for specific titles or people and need more powerful search functions, you should use our advanced search feature (on desktop site). For example, you can search for titles by specific genrecountrylanguage, or year; you can also search for title by Instant Watch Options (IMDb Freedive or Prime Video) or search for people by specific gender or star sign.

    From the Advanced Search page (https://www.imdb.com/search/) you can do the following: Advanced Title SearchAdvanced Name SearchSearch Collaborations (Two People in the Same Title, Two Titles with the Same People).
