The Movie Database Support

As I'm browsing through the Czech movies here on TMDB I'm dicovering quite a lot of student movies. I know that generally they aren't allowed, so perhaps I should have to report them, however I don't know what sources should I provide for the report to be accepted by the mods. I don't know of any comprehesive DB of Czech student films, so the only source I can use is (Czech alternative to IMDB) which have all student films marked with "studentsk√Ĺ film". Example:

Oasis (2017), a 3 minutes long student movie made by Daria Kashcheeva:

Is that link to CSFD it enough? Or should I search for more sources? Or should I rather not waste time by reporting this kind of movies at all?

Thank you.

Hi, what we need to know is that the movie does not qualify for anything of the following (from a href="">the Contribution bible):

Should an amateur project be screened at a selective and relevant film festival (e.g. a small town festival, a youth film festival or the Cannes Short Film Corner do not qualify), have a proper theatre release (e.g. a private/rented screening do not qualify), be on national TV in a country (e.g. small, local channels do not qualify), be on Netflix or an equivalent (e.g. content uploaded to your own YouTube channel, Vimeo or website, or Amazon Prime do not qualify), or picked up and sold by a proper distributor (e.g. local stores do not qualify), it might be allowed.

Thank for quick reply @lineker. Unfortunatelly from my point of view, I'm not able to prove (it's practically impossible) that any od the student films I found doesn't qualify aforementioned, so I'm leaving them unreported. Anyway it's good to know that and you saved me a lot of time, so thank you!

Edit: I'm still thinking about it - wouldn't it be practical/worthy to at least tag somehow all those student films? They generally doesn't seem to me to be on par with all other proper movies on TMDB...

At some point in the future it is somewhat likely that a moderator will come across such an entry. What happens then is that the moderator investigates the entry / director. If there is no proof of any qualifying release the entry is deleted. The user who added the entry can then reply and provide evidence and if that evidence checks out, the entry can possibly be re-added (but that is very rare).
