We’re currently working on a project to get more links to and from Discogs and Filmogs. There are already quite a few Discogs artist pages that link to their corresponding Filmogs page, and vice versa, which is great.

We don’t yet have the tools or resources to fully automate our linking, so we’re doing it manually. If you’d like to get involved with this project, here’s a spreadsheet (sorry, it's a Google doc) where you can find likely links and check them off as they’re added: Discogs to Filmogs - Suggested Links

Please note, some of these might not be an exact match, so please double check the links before submitting. Have at it!

Getting more links between Discogs and Filmogs has already been great in helping music fans discover more about their favorite artists and find films and clips by, about, or related to them. We’d love to really strengthen that connection between Discogs and Filmogs and create the ultimate data source for music fans. Thanks for helping us out.

Any way to make the entries easier to search in the spreadsheet?

Yeah, apologies it does get a bit cluttered in the spreadsheet.

But you should be able to search the spreadsheet by going to Edit > Find and replace or using the shortcut Ctrl + f (its + f if you are on a Mac)

Roy Meadows (last entry on spreadsheet) - is this the same person as discogs entry?!

One was in a Batman movie in 1966 and the other was making gangsta rap in 2010 so I would imagine that this is just a name match and not the same person no :) This is why we need the human verification. Thanks EK_

Having the 'add link' option on release pages now means you can link releases to discogs too which is pretty handy, especially for those CD+DVD sets.

Nice one sound.and.vision thanks for adding all those links!

We've had almost 200 links added from Discogs to Filmogs credit pages in the past week - that's a lot more than we could have achieved on our own. That takes our total number of links up to around 500
Thanks a lot for the great work here, we'll have all these credits fully linked in no time :)
