IMDbPro Lists FAQ


What are lists on IMDbPro, and how are they different from lists on IMDb?

Lists can be created by any IMDbPro member for people or titles. Lists are designed to make your job easier, whether you are looking to fill a role, build your network, share ideas, or conduct industry research. You can find Your Lists under "Your Tools" in the navigation bar on IMDbPro.

Lists created on IMDbPro are separate from lists created on IMDb, and cannot be migrated from one site to the other. IMDbPro lists can be created for titles or people ONLY (image and video lists cannot be created on IMDbPro). IMDbPro lists cannot be made publicly discoverable like lists on IMDb; however, you can share a list from IMDbPro with other people (even those without an active IMDbPro membership).
