List of pages using this template

This is an infobox for pages about films.

Information entered into the director, released and language fields are automatically linked and categorised to the relating category.

Manual or not?

Some of the parameters (Directed by, Released, Language, Series name, Series name 2) have very specific rules about how they are used (see below) that make them pretty restrictive. If this doesn't work for your use case, you can use the "manual" variations that have no auto-formatting or auto-categorization. If you use these, please make use of the following small templates for formatting. The reason for this is so that the data will automatically link to the right categories.

  • Template:Release Date for formatting the release date for films. (For example, when a film has had multiple releases.)
  • Template:Language for formatting film languages. (For example, when a film has been released in multiple languages.)
  • Template:Created For Logo for re-formatting the "Created for" field to include logos if available. Do NOT use if there is only one item in this field.
