Adjusting the order of films in an event listing

I run a genre film festival that's listed on IMDB. However, the order of the films needs adjusting. I would like the "Overall Best Film" for each season to sit at the top of the listing. I can't find a way of adjusting this. Is there a way to do it without a Pro account?

Hi @WISFFF -

To clarify further, are you asking about reordering the display of the Award Name or the display of the titles listed for an award?

@Michelle​ I could be wrong, but I think that WISFFF is thinking of a situation such as you see at https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000147/2023/1 for the Cannes Film Festival, where the most important award of the festival, the Palme d'Or, is listed at the top of the award page.

Apparently for the festival WISFFF runs, the most important award is not currently listed at the top of the award page, but they would like to get that award, the Overall Best Film award, moved to the top of the page.

Hi @gromit82​ -

Thanks for clarifying the request.  I'm not 100% certain of the Award order display logic or if the order can be manually changed.  I have reached out to the appropriate team to confirm those details, as soon as I have confirmation I will post the information here.

Hi Michelle, Gromit

Thanks for the reply and please forgive the slow response. 

Gromit is correct in his interpretation of the question. Ideally I'd love to be able to specify an overall order, however, the main thing is that the "Overall Best Film" sits at the top of the listings. 

It's fairly simple in a website build but I also understand that the amount of access all the contributors are provided must be set at a certain level.

Many thanks for the responses.

Hi Michelle

Wondering if there's has been any feedback?

IMDB changes and alterations to listings is becoming increasingly slow. Just wondering if there are difficulties listers should know about. No angst. Juist info.

My thanks

@WISFFF​ Hi! 

Overall Best Film was moved to be first. Let us know if we can help you with anything else.

Cheers!

Hi Bethanny

Many thanks for the listing move on the WISFFF page. Greatly appreciated. 

My only minor concern is that within the Overall Best Film... an Honorary Mention is actually listed above the Best Film Winner?

May I ask, never having done the Pro account, are these things adjustable with a pro account or is it still a matter of contacting yourselves for such changes? It seems that if a filmmaker beats me to the listing punch and puts their data up (which I'm fine with), it may list it to the page in slightly different position. 

My thanks

Hi @WISFFF​ -

Apologies for the delayed response.  To clarify, an IMDbPro membership will not allow you to modify the award page display order, this is a request that can only be handled manually by IMDb staff. 

Concerning the order of the category listing, while we can manually make changes to the display of the Award, we do not have the tools at this time to customize the category order.
