The IMDbPro app empowers members with a convenient way to search the
profiles of more than 4 million people, access the latest industry news,
get contact and representation details for more than 300,000 industry
professionals and tap through to call or email directly. The app is
equipped with newly developed features including the ability for a
member to upload photos and manage their page on the go as well as
IMDbPro Track, which offers a custom newsfeed and notifications on the
people and film & TV projects a member has selected to follow. The app
leverages other IMDbPro member-only benefits, including the ability to
explore more than 25,000 in-development film and TV titles and gain
exclusive insights into which professionals and titles are trending via
IMDbPro STARmeter and MOVIEmeter data.

"As we continue to enhance our IMDbPro app, feedback from our members
guides our decisions on the new features and functionality to add," said
Matt Kumin, Head of IMDbPro. "Making the app available for Android means
all members now have on-the-go access to our powerful tools and
information and the ability to quickly research and make connections
from anywhere in the world."

The addition of contact information for resources including the Women In
Film Sexual Harassment Help Line and the U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission (EEOC) supports industry efforts to work toward
professional conduct and gender parity, including a recently announced
collaboration between IMDbPro and ReFrame — a coalition of industry
professionals and partner companies founded by Women In Film and
Sundance Institute whose mission is to increase the number of women of
all backgrounds working in film, TV and media — to recognize standout,
gender-balanced film and TV projects.

The IMDbPro app for Android is the latest in a series of product
innovations guided by customer input, including an enhanced desktop
experience that makes it even easier to access the IMDbPro-exclusive
data and insights members use the most. New features are regularly added
to the IMDbPro app, such as the addition of IMDbPro Track. IMDbPro
members are entertainment professionals across nearly every major job
function in the industry, comprising a growing number of decision
makers, including many of the most prolific producers, casting
directors, filmmakers, agents, managers and studio executives.

The IMDbPro app is exclusively available for use by IMDbPro members and
can be downloaded for free in the Google
Play Store
(Android) and App
Store
(iOS). To become an IMDbPro member today, visit www.imdbpro.com.
