Introduction

Filmmakers provides a RESTful JSON API with token-based authentication. You can request an API key with our support. The permission scope of the API key varies depending on the use case, so when contacting us be sure to specify the desired use case (e.g. you plan on using Filmmakers data for a website).

API updates and backwards compatibility

While we won't be introducing any major changes, we do plan to add new features and endpoints over time. This is a list of changes that we consider to be backwards compatible:

Please bear this in mind when programming against our API, and try to ensure that these non-breaking changes don't break your code.

If we do introduce a breaking change, we will create new endpoints with a new version prefix in the URI.

Authentication

Once you have been issued an API key you can use the following code to authorize requests:

curl "api_endpoint_here" \
  -H "Authorization: Token token=API_KEY"

Filmmakers expects the API key to be included in all API requests to the server in a header that looks like the following:

Authorization: Token token=API_KEY

Cross origin resource sharing

The API supports Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) for AJAX requests from any origin.

Here's a sample request sent from a browser hitting https://www.example.com/:

$ curl -I https://www.filmmakers.eu/api/v1/actor_profiles -H "Origin: https://www.example.com"
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
Access-Control-Allow-Methods: GET

Rate limits

Rate limits are enforced on a per IP address basis. Currently Filmmakers allows up to 300 requests within a 5 minute period. If this quota is exceeded your IP will be throttled for the remainder of this period. In this case the API will return an error responses that shows up as status code 429.

Along with the status code the following RateLimit response header fields will be returned:

Ratelimit-Limit: 300
Ratelimit-Remaining: 0
Ratelimit-Reset: 1597048500

Pagination

This API supports pagination, following the proposed RFC-8288 standard for Web linking.

The pagination information is included in response HTTP headers, namely Total (total entries), Per-Page (entries per page) and Link (containing links to corresponding pages).

The current page can be set using the page parameter, and the number of entries per page can be specified with the optional per_page parameter. The default value for per_page is 250, and the maximum allowed value for per_page is 1000. If this limit is exceeded, a 400 Bad Request error code will be returned.

Webhooks

A webhook is an endpoint on your server that receives requests from Filmmakers, notifying you about events for actor profiles such as a profile edit. This requires a new endpoint on your server such as https://www.example.com/webhooks/filmmakers which should be publicly accessible and allow unauthenticated POST requests. Note that HTTPS URLs are required for all webhook endpoints.

Read the event data

Filmmakers sends the event data in the request body. Each event is structured as an Event object with a type, timestamp, and related Filmmakers resource nested under data (currently only an actor profile id - see example on the right)

{
  "type": "actor_profile.updated"
  "created": 1633887337,
  "data": {
    "id": 123
  }
}

There are currently two event types: actor_profile.updated and actor_profile.deleted. Note that update events are grouped if they occur within a reasonable timeframe, e.g. you might only receive 1 webhook if an actor profile is updated several times within a short timeframe.

Return a 200 response

Send a successful 200 response to Filmmakers as quickly as possible because the event is retried with an exponential back off if a response isn't sent within a reasonable time. This means that you should write any long-running processes as code that can run asynchronously outside the webhook endpoint.

Verify requests are sent by Filmmakers

X-Signature: t=1492774577, v1=5257a869e7ecebeda32affa62cdca3fa51cad7e77a0e56ff536d0ce8e108d8bd

All webhook events are signed by including a signature in each event's header. This allows you to verify that the events were sent by Filmmakers, not by a third party. The Api key is used as secret to sign webhook events. Signatures are generated using a hash-based message authentication code (HMAC) with SHA-256.

The X-Signature header included in each signed event contains a timestamp and one signature. The timestamp is prefixed by t=, and the signature is prefixed by a scheme. Schemes start with v, followed by an integer. Currently, the only signature scheme is v1.

You can verify the signature on your side as follows (see example on the right in Ruby):

# Step 1: Extract the timestamp and signatures from the header
signature = request.headers["X-Signature"]
  .split(",")
  .map { |part| part.split("=") }
  .to_h
# (this returns a hash like { "t" => 1492774577, "v1" => "5257a86..." })

# Step 2: Prepare the signed_payload string
payload = request.body.read
signed_payload = "#{signature['t']}.#{payload}"

# Step 3: Determine the expected signature
expected_signature = OpenSSL::HMAC.hexdigest(
  OpenSSL::Digest.new("sha256"),
  "YOUR_FILMMAKERS_API_KEY",
  signed_payload
)

# Step 4: Compare the signatures
expected_signature == signature["v1"]

⚠ Webhooks are not yet generally available. If you are interested in using them please contact our support

Error codes

Filmmakers uses conventional HTTP response codes to indicate the success or failure of an API request. In general: Codes in the 2xx range indicate success. Codes in the 4xx range indicate an error that failed given the information provided (e.g., a required parameter is missing, the request lacks valid authentication credentials, etc.). Codes in the 5xx range indicate an error with our servers (these should rarely happen).

Certain 4xx errors, notably the 410 Gone status, indicate that a requested resource (such as an actor_profile or a talent_agency) has been merged with another and is no longer available at the original URL. The response will include the ID of the new resource, and clients should use this ID to access the merged resource.

Actor profiles

Get all actor profiles

curl "https://www.filmmakers.eu/api/v1/actor_profiles" \
  -H "Authorization: Token token=API_KEY"

The above command returns JSON structured like this:

[
  {
    "id": 1,
    "name": "John Doe",
    "gender": "m"
  },
  {
    "id": 2,
    "name": "Jane Doe",
    "gender": "f"
  }
]

This endpoint retrieves all actor profiles available with the access rights of the API key. Most of the time it is scoped to a talent agency.

This endpoint retrieves a specific actor profile.

HTTP Request

GET https://www.filmmakers.eu/api/v1/actor_profiles/<ID>

URL Parameters

Parameter Description
ID The ID of the actor profile to retrieve

Query Parameters

Parameter Default Description
enum null If set to translate attributes are translated if possible (e.g. gender will be male or männlich instead of m). Note that hash and array attributes (eg. dances / sports) will be joined to a comma-separated string when translating attributes.
locale en Translates attributes with closed lists, free text fields are only available in the entry language. Possible values are: en, de, fr, it, es, pl, ro, ru, tr. This parameter only has an effect when enum is set to translate.

Response fields

See example response to the right for an overview of included fields. Please note:

It is not guaranteed that the exemplary JSON structure shown is complete. Additional fields may be added without notice. The following table provides additional context for the individual fields visible in the exemplary JSON structure:

talent_agency_connections[].talent_agency_employee_id integer id of the talent agency employee
talent_agency_connections[].agency_profile_url string actor profile url on the website of their agency
agency_profile_url string actor profile url on the website of their agency Note Please use talent_agency_connections[].agency_profile_url instead
talent_agency_id integer id of the talent agency Note Please use talent_agency_connections[].talent_agency_id instead
representative.id integer id of the talent agency employee Note Please use talent_agency_connections[].talent_agency_employee_id instead
representative.name string name of the talent agency employee Note Please use talent_agency#employees.first_name/last_name instead
