About Filmogs

Filmogs is an online community-built film database brought to you from the creators of Discogs. It is a new site that allows you to catalog all types of films. In the same way that Discogs allows you to catalog the specific version of your music release, Filmogs allows you to catalog the specific version of the film you have.

The Purpose Of Filmogs

While there are many great existing online databases focusing on film and TV series, Filmogs is the only database focusing on the physical release of film and TV series on DVD, Blu-ray, VHS tape, LaserDisc and other physical film formats and the various editions that are released over time and geographies.

Everyone is welcome to contribute to the Filmogs database! We strongly encourage you to check out our Filmogs General Rules and Guidelines before submitting. This is to ensure high quality data submissions and to make sure you don't waste your time submitting items that aren't permitted on Filmogs.

While Filmogs is currently still in its early phases and requires a lot more data before it matches Discogs as a resource for physical DVD, blu-ray and VHS film release, we hope to see Filmogs become the authority on physical film releases, and the go-to marketplace to buy and sell films on DVD, blu-ray, VHS and more.

Filmogs is a continuous work in progress. We’re always working on improvements and ways to make it as valuable as possible for the community. We’re eternally grateful to our community of passionate film fans and collectors for your contributions to the Filmogs database and support of newcomers to the site.

By adding your DVDs, Blu-ray, VHS tapes and more to the database, you’re helping to solidify the history of film and physical releases, and in turn creating an invaluable resource for generations of film fans and collectors to come.

Filmogs is a user-built database brought to you by the creators of Discogs. We’d like to do for film releases what Discogs has done for music releases; that is create a comprehensive archive of as many physical film releases as possible.

If you’re a fan of Discogs and have followed its growth over the past few years, you might be curious to experience what it was like in earlier years. Filmogs in its current state is a good representation of the early years of Discogs. By getting started with Filmogs now and contributing to the database and building the marketplace, you could one day righteously claim to have been here from the beginning.

Data we Track

  • Film is the abstract description of the visual work. This includes data like the title, the actors, director and so on. Think of Film as a master, unifying version under which each physical release is categorized.
  • Release is the physical manifestation of the film, for example, the DVD. It includes things like the companies that released it, the catalog number, and so on. There can be many releases per film. Also, one release can contain multiple films, for example, the Star Wars box set.

All submissions to the database should be associated with a release. More info here.

How to Contribute Films and Releases to Filmogs Database

As per Filmogs General Rules and Guidelines, the physical release should be the primary source of information for a submission. Therefore, contributors should ensure the Release of their item exists in the database before adding a Film (master) page.

More info on the difference between a Film and Release page can be found here.

In short:

  1. From the top navigation bar, click 'Contribute' and select 'Add Release'.
  2. Add as many details from the physical releases as possible in the submission form to create the most substantial contribution to the database. We recommend you check out the Guidelines for all Databases before getting started.
  3. If you are able to upload images of the release, then you are encouraged to do so, however, it is not mandatory.

You can edit your (or other) submissions at any time via the 'Edit this page' button at the right of the page.
