Two films erroneously combined into one IMDB page

Last year, I acted in a short film called "Contingency". Here is the link to the film: https://vimeo.com/206301725    There is another short film called "Contingency". Here is the link to that film: https://vimeo.com/141939771    The director of my "Contingency" submitted the film to IMDB. And the other "Contingency" was submitted to IMDB as well.    Unfortunately, it seems that IMDB has combined these two films into one IMDB page.    Here is the IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5106408/?ref_=fn_al_tt_3    I'll provide an example of what I'm talking about. In the cast section of the IMDB page for "Contingency", IMDB lists four actors from my "Contingency" film, as well as Nicolas Bernard, an actor from the other "Contingency" film. Also, two release dates are listed for "Contingency".    I have submitted several changes to IMDB, asking IMDB to fix the problem and to create two separate IMDB pages for these two films. But so far, IMDB has done nothing.    So, how do I get IMDB to do the right thing?

J: I am giving you a "me too" vote in hopes of attracting the IMDb staff's attention to this situation. The IMDb staff can separate two films that have been mistakenly combined, but for regular users it's considerably more difficult.

In the meantime, I recommend not trying to add, delete, or correct data for either film until the two titles get separated into two different pages, because doing so may complicate matters for the staff.

Hi JMtWaters -

The title is currently being split, like gromit82 instructed, please refrain from submitting any updates/corrections.  Check the title page in a few days and if there is any remaining information that belongs to the other title, please let us know. Cheers!

Hi there — I have the same problem with this film: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6617656/?ref_=nv_sr_1
There was a short with this name, released in 2017. A feature version of the film was later produced which is currently in festivals. In November of last year I added a new page for the feature, but now it looks like the two films have been combined. Is there a way to roll that back? Thanks!
