The ones that have an article on the German Wikipedia are now redlinked as they are presumably the more notables ones. Stepopen (talk) 02:45, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Makes no sense to exclude some of his film on the ground that so far no article has been written on them. Clearly many, if not at all of his TV productions and even short films (see [1] for a book dicussion of his short films) are notable and will sooner or later have an article. Including only those that have an article is an arbitrary criterion, and it would leave the impression with the reader that the films on the template are all films by this director. Looking at many other film directors templates, for example Template:Bergman or Template:Andrzej Wajda shows that there is a consensus to include all films, and not to exclude those films that have not yet an article.

Multiple red links at Template:George Cukor Films prompted me to create articles for all the films that lacked them, so by all means keep red links in templates. LiteraryMaven (talkcontrib) 16:41, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the comment, see also Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Films#Film_navboxes. Consensus thus seems to be to include all films. Stepopen (talk) 01:28, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
