About Filmogs

Filmogs is an online 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.

Data we Track

  • Film is the abstract description of the visual work. This includes data like the title, the actors, director and so on.
  • 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.

How to contribute

In short:

  1. From the top navigation bar, add a film.
  2. From the top navigation bar, add a release of the film.
  3. link the release to the film via the 'Films' field on the release, using the Internal ID number found in the pane on the right hand side of the film page.
  4. If you are able to upload images of the release, then you are encouraged to do so, however, it is not mandatory.
