Whether it’s headline news or not, I still found it very exciting that IMDb.com has a new “Independent Film at IMDb” section of their website. For as long as I can remember, you could sort of navigate through the trailers section of the site to find a slim selection labeled “indie”. Hmm, does this mean that indie’s finally gone mainstream? Probably not, but we’re getting there. Props to IMDb for seeing that independent film deserves its own page once and for all. There’s not that much of a difference from the homepage, but I did like how they have a top trailers list put together by the editors of the site (many festival favorites), a specific independent-film news column and updates on films added to Amazon Instant.
To my fellow Indies, I humbly ask that you take a look at the new subpage of the movie database we all know and love. Tell everyone you LIKE the page via Facebook and tweet the links that catch your eye. IMDb has 2 million plus fans on Facebook, but Independent Film at IMDb only has a little over 1,000 likes. Who knows what could be next if we voice our opinion? I’m liking the sound of “Indie Movie Database”. How about you?
