what are movie credits

What kind of credits are eligible to be included in the database?

If you're an actor, director or other industry professional you may need to correct your listing. This page provides all the information to enable you to submit additions/corrections to your own credits.

To avoid any misunderstandings, please keep in mind the following before you attempt to add or change your listing:

  • We collect and display most types of film-related information but there are some kind of credits that we don't list yet. We will only list information that fits our criteria and we reserve the right to reject/delete information at any time for any reason, especially if we are unable to verify it.

For example we don't list appearances/work in music video clips or commercials or stage plays. This type of information may be listed in the "Other Works" section of a person's biographical information (click here for an example) but will not appear directly under his/her filmography. Moreover we will only list credits that fit our criteria and we reserve the right to reject/delete information at any time for any reason, especially if we are unable to verify it. Ineligible credits can still be added as part of a separate Resume. Please visit IMDbPro Resume Services for more information.

  • The IMDb is a title-based

    database. What this means is that data collected in the IMDb is centered around film titles, not individual people's credits: we can only add credits to existing titles. If you have worked on a film or TV movie that we don't list yet and want your filmography to reflect that, you need to add the new title before your credit can be added to it.

  • The database is not updated in real time. Any information submitted to the IMDb won't appear immediately: it has to be checked and processed by our staff first. New credits submissions take a minimum of 8 to 10 days before they appear online, assuming they are sent through our automated web-based submission form. Credits for new names (i.e. people with no pre-existing filmographies) or new titles require an additional two weeks to be processed.

    Changes which are not sent via the web interface may take considerably longer than that, depending on various factors (mainly how much supporting information is provided along with the credit addition). That's why it is essential that you follow our guidelines as closely as possible to help us process your credits in a timely fashion.

  • Work on some kind of titles is eligible for inclusion in the database, while others are not accepted. Here's a list of both categories:
