I am trying to change the (short film) portion that shows after the title of one of my projects. It was actually a show and I feel like the short film diminishes the credit so I am wondering where to find that under IMDB contributor? I checked under "film length" and "running time" that didn't change it. Let me know if anyone knows where to find this. Thanks a million!

It pretty much depends on the running time:
* feature length (45 mins or over) 
* short subject (less than 45 mins) 

(Of course if it's a TV series or TV mini-series, this doesn't really apply.)

Hi Alex,

As Eboy has stated if the title is a film or video that is less than 45 minutes this would be classified as a short. If the title is over 45 minutes but is currently classified as a short this can be corrected using the 'edit page' feature. First you will need to correct the running time to the accurate running time of the film. Once this is listed as 45 minutes or over you will be able to edit the genres to remove the genre of 'short'.

TV Series or TV Movies with a running time of less than 22 minutes would also be listed as a short.

For more information, please refer to our guide below:

If you find you are still having difficulty removing the genre of 'short' from the title, please provide us with the URL link to the title on IMDb and our data editors can look into this for you further.
