The Movie Database Support

Is there a way to do that? I'd like to "spotlight" certain media and browse through them based on tags... Like Flickr...

I'm moving your question to API section.

You can make a discover query with specified year, e.g.:

https://api.themoviedb.org/3/discover/movie?api_key=###&language=en-US&sort_by=popularity.desc&include_adult=false&include_video=false&page=1&primary_release_year=1968

Each returned record then contains field "poster_path" which can be used to get url of the default poster:

...  
{  
      "popularity": 22.063,  
      "vote_count": 6323,  
      "video": false,  
      "poster_path": "/90T7b2LIrL07ndYQBmSm09yqVEH.jpg",  
      "id": 62,  
      "adult": false,  
      "backdrop_path": "/rkaP7dnHenOr2n2IqMxip6rtT4W.jpg",  
      "original_language": "en",  
      "original_title": "2001: A Space Odyssey",  
      "genre_ids": [  
        12,  
        9648,  
        878  
      ],  
      "title": "2001: A Space Odyssey",  
      "vote_average": 8,  
      "overview": "Humanity finds a mysterious object buried beneath the lunar surface and sets off to find its origins with the help of HAL 9000, the world's most advanced super computer.",  
      "release_date": "1968-04-10"  
    },  
...  

I.e.: "https://image.tmdb.org/t/p/" + "w500" + "/90T7b2LIrL07ndYQBmSm09yqVEH.jpg" = "https://image.tmdb.org/t/p/w500/90T7b2LIrL07ndYQBmSm09yqVEH.jpg"

You can get a list of all allowed poster sizes by using configuration query:

...
    "poster_sizes": [  
      "w92",  
      "w154",  
      "w185",  
      "w342",  
      "w500",  
      "w780",  
      "original"  
    ],  
...

I have never used the API. How do you make queries? In a browser, or with a specific program?

I have never used the API.

Ahh, if you just want to browse those posters on the TMDB website, you must wait for this feature to be finished and launched.

No, I have only recently discovered the (great!) site... Thanks, I'll keep an eye on it.
