Deleting Title Year from my film in IMDB

Hi, my film Unveiling The Horse Demon (2016) - IMDb needs 2016 removed from it, as the film has not been released yet.  Can someone help me with this?

Horse: The way to fix this is to submit a Release Date for the film. If you at least know what year the film is expected to be released, you can submit the year as a Release Date.

After the Release Date is processed, the year in parentheses after the title should be updated within a few days. (It won't necessarily happen immediately.)

I hope this helps. Good luck!

@gromit82​ Thanks but I would prefer to have ???? as the release date, as I'm still looking for distributors for the film.

Horse: I understand. You will probably have to get advice from other contributors or the IMDb staff about that, since I don't know the recommended way to get the year after the title changed from a specific year to (????).

Hi HorseDemon-

 

gromit82 is correct, we can't change the release date to ???? you will need to update the release date to the new release date as soon as you have one.

 

Cheers!

… and in this case since there are 2019 festival screenings, the year will remain (2019).

@Col_Needham​ Thank you.   Although not an official commercial release date, at least the festival screenings are shown.

The official trailer for the film implies that the film had festival engagements as early as 2017. Can you please provide more details about them?
