I'm the director and producer of the film and can't change the release date - Reason Unable to verify.
IMDB or @Michelle can you please help us with this issue.
I have been trying for 2 years to get IMDB to correct the release date of my film. The latest one was on 9 November 2021 with case #211109-072308-636000.
We are just trying to get the entry deleted that says 2016 and show the first and original release date of the movie in August 2019.
It took 3 long years to raise the funding to get the film finally completed and along the way we showed scenes, teasers, clips, and unfinished versions to financiers and festivals and showcases to raise money to get the film finished.
We finally finished production in 2019 and released the film in August 2019. But IMDB still has 2016 wrongly on there as the year it was released. We were still shooting in 2016 so this date is wrong and I am not the one who listed this.
I tried submitting proof but there is no where to upload on the site as it says there is. No check box to allow me to upload the proof. I went to the "Contribution History" page and the "provide an explanation to assist in processing this submission" option is nowhere to be found.
I have deal memos, correspondences with the editor, sound mixer, DP etc showing the dates we were still shooting and trying to get the film edited in 2019.
@Michelle can you please help us once and for all to correct our release date? See the reason below that my submission has been denied over and over again with no way to prove this is wrong. I greatly appreciate your help in advance. Thank you so much!
