How do I delete a duplicate project? A festival had me create a separate project so they could put it in the film market, but it auto-created a page for it. So now the film is listed twice on everyone's credits.

Watergun: I'm guessing this might have to do with the films currently listed as The Taking of Ezra Bodine (2014) and The Taking of Ezra Bodine SF15-272 (2014). So that's what this example will be based on. And I'm going to say that the one with the "SF15-272" is incorrectly listed for this example.

Go to the incorrectly listed film's page and click "Edit page".

On the next screen, on the Title Correction line, select "Add correction". Click "Continue".

On the next screen, there will be a blank space in which to enter the correct title. Enter the correct title in proper IMDb format, such as:
The Taking of Ezra Bodine (2014)

Below that, there will be an Explanation box. In that box, enter something like "This is a duplicate entry with an incorrectly listed title which was automatically submitted by a film festival. This page should be merged into the page for the film's correct title." Click "Check these updates".

On the next screen, you will get a warning that says, "The new title already exists in IMDb ...." and asking if you are sure you want to merge this title into the correct title. That's what you want, so check the box marked "Warning understood, go ahead anyway." Click "Re-check these updates".

On the next screen, your data should appear with a green background, and you should be able to click "Submit these updates".

I hope this helps. Good luck!
