How to correct (update) the website link to the film festivals website from the IMDB page?

I'm trying to find out on the IMDB website how to correct or change the link to the film festivals website. But still can't find it. Like as if there no way to do it. Sometimes the Film Festivals change their websites. But the links are still old and they are just brocken. Many terrible links move to the old places. Question. How to change them? When you press the button Edit Page, you can only correct the awards and the films which are awarded, but not the festival itself. So, how to do it?

Hi intellectpictures -

This change can only be made manually by staff.  So yes, post the festival names and the correct official website links here and our staff can fix them for you.

Cheers!

Hi intellectpictures -

Apologies or not clarifying above, we can modify the event link if the official website has changed or is outdated, however, we cannot replace an official website link with an unofficial link, we are also currently only supporting the display of one event link per page, so we cannot add additional links.

Looking at the requests above, it seems most of these are asking to add additional links or replace an official festival link with another.  Can you confirm if any of the above requests contain outdated links that need replacing?

Hi
Thanks for your reply.
My name is Alex Davidson and I and my company Intellect Pictures work with all of the mentioned festivals and not only with them. Due to Covid, the festivals have had to operate online only and this has meant that they have not been able to earn the same amount of income from submissions that they normally would do and have also not been able to sell tickets to their screenings as they have not been able to hold physical screenings in theatres. 
Due to this drop in income all over the world, as well as the fact that hackers have infiltrated some of the sites, many of the festivals have chosen to drop their websites due to the ongoing costs of hosting/employing support staff etc to manage them and are now using their Facebook pages as their official pages for their festivals. So if possible, pleases can you remove the website links requested in our previous letter and replace with the Facebook links that have been provided in their place.
Thank you for understanding.
