Hello iMDB, I am submitting a short film called: "Darkness Illuminated by Silver." However, I am getting the "Lack of Supporting Evidence" error...twice.

Needs Attention
More about title statuses

Reason: Lack of supporting evidence

There was not enough evidence with your new title contribution for us to approve it and/or verify the attached cast and crew for publication.

To help us verify the existence of this title and the attached cast and crew, you will need to resubmit it with additional information.

Provide one of the following:

  1. In the "Miscellaneous Link" section of the new title submission form, add links to third party sites detailing the production.
  2. In the "Explanation for missing information" box at the top of the new title contribution form, add additional information detailing your case for your title to be listed on IMDb.

You can add this additional information by clicking the resubmit button and returning to your previous contribution.

Please review our title FAQ for more information.

The ID is: #200522-182556-264000

For the misc. link, I added my Facebook page for my production company which has a post announcing the new film.

And for the "Explanation for missing information", do I have to create a new submission form from scratch? I can't find that section anywhere.

Please let me know what can be done. Thank you. Be safe.

In the title form it specifically states not to use Facebook.

A reprint from the title form............

Miscellaneous Link

* Important: Are you submitting links to help us verify a new title?

Please submit your title with one or more of the following working direct link(s) to a third party site:

* A direct link to a trailer, clip or full video (e.g. YouTube or Vimeo - not password protected)
* Press articles about the title, e.g. something from the trades (Variety, Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, Screendaily etc. - not self-written or on social networks)
* Evidence of a screening, e.g. an article, your entry in a festival listing, TV guide etc.
* Other evidence, e.g. news articles, reviews etc.

The more links you submit, the easier it is to verify the title's existence, and the quicker this title will appear on the site.

Please remember:
* We do not consider links to Facebook pages, blogs, wikis, casting notices, Twitter or social network sites as suitable evidence of a title's eligibility.
