Introducing FilmDB


After creating the TVDB script I immediately began work on a Film version where you could download high quality Film posters and backdrops for use in your websites and applications. This script uses the fantastic to grab the images.

For an online demo click here and try adding some of your favorite Films.


  • Database driven
  • Easy to setup and configure
  • Uses the API to get:
    • Seperate OO PHP class to connect to the API
    • Film information
    • High quality poster images
    • High quality backdrop images
  • Cache searches for improved performance
  • Progressive Javascript enhancements
  • Knowledge of PHP would be beneficial
  • Everything downloaded and saved locally incase API goes down

As the script uses website you will need to get an API key by signing up and requesting one, a pretty straight forward process hopefully


The script is available to download here and if you would like any modifications or custom stuff doing just let me know via email or leave a comment.
