.film is a new generic top level domain name (gTLD) proposed to ICANN's New gTLD Program.


  • The Film Registry Inc. is an applicant for the .film TLD to serve as registry operator. The company plans to restrict the registrations of .film domain names to film industry professional and legitimate owners of film titles. The company also aims to utilize the TLD to solve problems related to film industry including piracy and copyright infringement, to provide an intuitive and easy to navigate domain name system and to preserve the legacy of film libraries in perpetuity. AusRegistry was selected by Film Registry to provide registry services for the .film domain space. [1] The company also created a dot Film Title Registration Bureau, which will be responsible in administering the registration and delegation process of domain names. It will also serve as an independent body to handle dispute resolution process for the domain space. The dot Film Registration Bureau will be lead by a president to be appointed by the president of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) while its member constituents will be come from every affiliated film industry body.[2]
