There's a film "Z" (2017). When I want to create a title, there's an error - probably we can't create titles with one letter. How do I create it?

After completing the first form, as you see above, I have this:



But when I creating some other films as "none of the above", there was no errors.
("Z" is a full name of the film.)

How can I get help to get my short film up on IMDb? When I try it can't be found on any data base, wich is a bit weird since it is an award winning short film, won the finest award you can win in Sweden. Is there any way to fix this?

What are you trying to achieve precisely? If you want to have your short film on the IMDb, please have a look at https://help.imdb.com/contribution?ref_=helpsect_tab, the right column "Titles", and start with the first item Adding a new title

Or are you facing some different kind of issue?

Hi michaelversatile -

I believe that the issue preventing you from submitting the new title is that the title is a single letter, please try submitting your title again this time with a placeholder title such as, "Untitled Z Project", and the form should then accept your submission.  Once the title has been approved and is live on the site, please let us know here and we can manually correct the title name for you.

In the meantime, I have filed a ticket for our tech team to review the error you encountered, as you should see a Warning explaining the issue rather than be redirected to the "Adding a New Title" page.
