About .FILM domains
Motion Picture Domain Registry (Motion Picture Domain Registry Pty Ltd) is the sponsor and GoDaddy Registry is the backend provider for the .FILM extension.
Who can register .FILM domains?
There are two scenarios where an applicant or registrant is eligible to register a .FILM domain name:
- The applicant or registrant must be a member of an approved association, body or union and closely connected to the domain name.
- If the domain name is a film title, the applicant or registrant must be a member of an approved association, body or union and hold rights to the exact matching film title.
For a list of approved associations, bodies, and unions, or for more information about eligibility requirements, please see the Eligibility section of the .FILM registry
