Does anyone know whether there is an 'open' source of film metadata. 
There have been several projects for music metadata including freedb 
(GPL) and musicbrainz  (by-nc-sa) but I don't know of one for films/dvds 
(there's IMDB of course but that doesn't seem very open_[1][2][3]).

Not only would this kind of db be a useful set of open knowledge but 
with the increasing sales of DVDs and ever cheaper hard disk space 
people are surely going to start building up dvd collections on their 
computers in the way they build up their CD collection.
