    IMDb is also heavily influenced by it's current categorical nature. If you have director credits, adding a new film with 'you' as director is a little easier, even if you haven't sent it off to any festivals. Getting a new listing in a new category in which you have no credits is more strict. In most cases, you'll need the withoutabox invitation or a festival acceptance elsewhere in which to back up your first time claim.

    I found that it'd be much easier by just submitting to any of the IMDB qualified festivals, then wait for the invitation code to list it on IMDB. Your film doesn't have to be accepted at the festivals, if they receive it and consider it, you will be invited!!!

    This may have changed but I thought a short film had to have won an award of some kind to get listed--particularly if it was a DVXuser short. So a DVXFest Winner could get listed but not a non-winning entry.

    It might be before but now we have withoutabox and it was owned by IMDB so it's easier.

    Geez. I thought it just had to do with having a public screening. That was my understanding anyways.

    For example, in a physical building where people physically attend.

    We will have to try again as I do have a director and producer credit on the SAG feature we did A/S/L. Also, guess it is time to start submitting to a few festivals.
