In this paper web-based movie recommendation system using hybrid filtering methods is presented. The recommender systems deliver one of the methods for increasing the web-based systems attractiveness and usability. We can distinguish three basic filtering methods that are applied in recommender systems: demographic, content-based, and collaborative. The combination of these approaches that is called hybrid method.
