I have searched the Community Support using the advanced search and couldn't find any posts like this. If this has been addressed, I just must have missed it.

In the past, I would download the keywords.list dataset and massage the data to supplement data I already have built for my personal collection in MSAccess. I could then find within my own collection other movies sharing the same keywords as one I recently enjoyed. 

The last dataset was the frozen one that is out on the web. Since then I have added to my collection more movies released after December 2017 freeze date. Is there any way that annually you could publish a new keywords.list for movies released after the previous years end date?

Alternatively, is there a way I could simply export the keywords for individual movies or for a list of movies?

Attached is a screenshot of the Access table with the keywords. 

Thanks,

John Stanton 

ps. Great job on restoring many of the features folks including myself were squabbling about over a year and a half ago.

Hi John,

Yes that was part of the very last full file set ever produced by IMDb before the system switch last winter.
Since, we can rely on daily extracts on a much narrower scale on https://datasets.imdbws.com/

The main structure difference is that the new set use the tconst data (ttxxxxxxxx or nmxxxxxxx) as key, instead of the previous heavy IMDb titles

Vincent,

As far as I can see, the extracts don't include one for keywords. Is that something that will be coming or am I missing it? Won't be the first time!

This set is the only publicly available one available. There are more extensive datasets available on AWS but not for free and I do not them.

Maybe Col Needham will answer and let us know what the prospects are to extend this set.

Hi John -

I have reached out to the appropriate technical team with your questions regarding the possibility to extract keywords.  As soon as I have an update from them I will let you know here.
