Change film's release year on a page you didn't create

I need to change the release date of my film from 2016 to 2019: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9042156/ I'm not even sure how this page was created. Please help!

Then sit back for a few days and wait for your submission to be checked and, if approved,, to be updated in the database.

Hi Adele, 

Please note, on IMDb a title's listed year is a reflection on a productions initial release date. 

Looking at your title Release Dates here: 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9042156/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_ov_inf

The current listed year on the title of 2016 appears accurate, as such we're unable to update this for you.

Thanks
Meredith

Hi Meredith, can you please look at the 2016 screening page I just resubmitted for review?: http://www.vietfilmfest.com/2016/movie/nailed-it-vietnamese-and-the-nail-industry/. This was a screening of a 15 minute fundraising trailer screened as a short film under the title "#NAILEDIT: VIETNAMESE & THE NAIL INDUSTRY, LONG STORY SHORT." The title itself denotes it's a different film of a different length. Thanks for your assistance.

Hi Meredith, my request was just denied again. What should I do? request to change the name of the film to "#NAILEDIT: VIETNAMESE & THE NAIL INDUSTRY, LONG STORY SHORT" and TRT to 15min, since that's what this screening was, not the film Nailed It? thank you

here it is: #190603-140959-524000. This request was recently denied. I don't understand why, as it's not the "Nailed It" feature. Is changing the title to "#NAILEDIT: VIETNAMESE & THE NAIL INDUSTRY, LONG STORY SHORT" with a TRT of 15min possible at least? It's hurting my distribution of the 59-minute feature "Nailed It."

Hi Adele -

As a version of the title was screened at the 2016 Viet Film Fest, we will need to retain that Release Date information and the original air date of 2016.  If the full version of the title has been released in 2019, you are welcome to add that Release Date (I noted that we currently have a 2019 Release Date for the PBS broadcast), but the title year will need to remain listed for the original year it aired, 2016.

the title of the short film is #NAILEDIT: VIETNAMESE & THE NAIL INDUSTRY, LONG STORY SHORT, and it's 15 minutes, I will be requesting these changes be made to the page. It's not correct as is, and making distribution difficult. It is not the same film! thank you

Hi Adele,

Did you follow the advice I provided in the other thread? https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/cant-change-the-inaccurate-release-date-of-my-film
