My new title is taking forever to be reviewed!

I added a new title for a short film on May 15th 2015. When I go to the track contribution page, it says the title is still pending review and should be reviewed by May 18th 2015. Well, it's June 12th and still nothing. Has anyone experienced something like this? Is it just a backlog in the IMDb system or could there be something wrong with my contribution?

Audrey: Please post your last full data submission here on this message board. You can copy it out of the receipt you would have received from IMDb by e-mail immediately after sending it in. Some of the regulars on the board may review it and, if they can, they may provide suggestions as to how to improve the submission to get it included in the database. (Also, please include the submission reference number -- it's an 18-digit number that will look something like 150123-123456-789000.)

                                          Hi Audrey -

                                          Unfortunately, our records show that the title submission for "Drawing Inspiration (2015)" has not processed due to a lack of supporting evidence.  Specifically, there was not enough evidence with your new title contribution for us to approve it for publication.

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

                                          Additional data and eligibility information for a pending title update must be sent via the site's submission forms -- this ensures that the data is correctly formatted and attached to the corresponding title data.  We apologize for any inconvenience caused by our requirement. 

                                          Please also note that you don't have to re-enter all the data -- you can easily update your previous title submission by going back to your title submission in your update history at and clicking on the corresponding update reference number.

                                          Thank you! I resubmitted it with the link to the full film on Youtube and an explanation. Hopefully it won't be rejected again. If that does happen, I guess I can just wait until the Withoutabox invitation comes since the film was just submitted to a festival.
