Great!  Let me know when it's done!

There's no way to get only the 'genres' key; you're doing right, asking for
only the 'main' info set (after that, you can access the 'genres' key of the
Movie object).

If you're worried about performances, you can consider using the
'mobile' data access system (i.e.: ia = imdb.IMDb('mobile') ) and
leaving the rest of your code untouched.
It should be slightly faster, but... I notice right now that it fails
to parse the 'genres' key.  I have to fix it. :-)
