SCREEN-L is a discussion group centering on the study of film and television. For comprehensive information on SCREEN-L, consult its FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), which is updated monthly (if necessary). SCREEN-L's current messages are contained in bit.listserv.screen-l, a Usenet discussion group that is directly connected to SCREEN-L. SCREEN-L's past messages are collected into weekly archives with names like "SCREEN-L - archives for 9411A." (9411A is computer-speak for the eleventh month of 1994; Aindicates the first week of that month.) Up until October 1994 the messages were bundled on a monthly rather than weekly basis. SCREEN-L's archive may be searched using e-mail. Here's how.
