The IMDB database is missing the language option "Kapampangan". Kapampangan, Pampango, or the Pampangan language is one of the major languages of the Philippines (see Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kapampangan_language). There is an active filmmaking community producing movies in this language. Several films in the IMDB database are listed as Filipino or Tagalog where the primary language should be "Kapampangan." For example, "Ari: My Life with a King (2015)" is an award-winning independent feature film primarily in the Kapampangan language (in fact the theme of the film is the preservation of the language). IMDB should add the language option "Kapampangan" to accurately identify these films and recognize the Kapampangan filmmaking community.
