Recommendations: People who liked this film also liked-- suggestion from a filmmaker

Our film is a romantic dramedy inspired by Ingmar Bergman's Scenes from a Marriage. The PWLTFAL for the film is Birdemic 2 and other bird horror movies.  (I guess one of our cast members is in these films.  Sigh.)  For indie filmmakers this could be such a great resource to guide folks to our film! I'd  love to see an algorithm linking the genres we tick in the without-a-box boxes with what people have ticked in their watchlist so that only relevant genre appropriate titles are suggested. 

Or a  'filmmaker suggests' section where the filmmaker suggests "If you liked such-and such you might like... us!"

We haven't released yet so hopefully it will improve it's matches when we do but even now submitting to festivals it's a drag.  

Independent filmmakers could really use help filtering and curating to guide the right audience to us.  "This People who liked this film also liked..." business is at best useless and at worst a misleading deterrent (no offense to anyone who loved Birdemic 2 ;).  

Thank you for your time reading this!!
