We started using this method of operation to ensure that people who download images also contribute to the website in some way. How do I get an API key? We are currently not issuing any new free API keys due to limitations of our server capacity. Please contact us through the form on top of this page> if you would like more information. How do I become a CineMaterial moderator? You cannot apply for such a status. What you can do is upload good posters. We might pick you as a new moderator after a while... I purchased credits but didn't get them. What's going on? It might be that your payment has not been cleared yet. If you are however sure your payment is cleared and that you did not receive the correct number of credits, please contact us using the form above with a message containing your PayPal email-address or the PayPal transaction ID. What sort of resolution is required to print out a full-size poster? Printing movie posters is at your own risk and for personal use only. We cannot provide any kind of license or authorisation. What is the IMDb movie ID? You can find the IMDb movie by browsing to a movie-page and then copy the 7-digit number from the end of the url. If a movie is not listed on IMDb, but you have poster for it, please let us know and we'll add the movie.
The main purpose of CineMaterial is to provide a database of movie posters that is as complete as possible. The principle of the website is that users upload a poster, and can then download one other poster in high resolution. If, however, you decide that you don't want to or cannot contribute to the site by uploading posters, but you still want to download high-resolution images, you can buy credits. That money is spent on our server.
I strongly believe that this website does not devalue the ability of copyright holders to profit from their original work. CineMaterial is meant as a complete reference of movie poster history and should, in fact, promote the movie industry in general.
