When used with the "This is a redirect" (Redr) template:

Template {{This is a redirect}} may be used to add from one to seven rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect from a film title that is a subtopic of the redirect target. For more information follow the bold category link.

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
  • This redirect category (rcat) template populates Category:Redirects from films. This rcat also formats the title of the film in italics on the redirect page. See below for those rare instances when this function must be subdued.
  • Add this rcat to a redirect (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Redr|from film}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page and its comparison page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R from film}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on all redirects from film titles that are subtopics of their targets.
  • Occasionally, an film title might require the use of {{DISPLAYTITLE}} to format the title of the redirect. In those cases the default italic title will interfere with that format and must be subdued. When this rcat tags a redirect from within the Redr template, this is done in the following manner:
{{Redr|from film|p1=noitalic}}
or if applied individually:
{{R from film|italic title=no}}
That will subdue the default italic title so no override conflict will result.



  • In main-article namespace, many film redirects are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are unprintworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Others, like this rcat, do not, and that means it is up to editors to choose which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The rcats that are used separately to populate those categories are:

{{Redr|from film|printworthy}}
{{Redr|from film|unprintworthy}}
Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
