I'm passing on this announcement that might be useful to some


After being out of commission for a month, has returned.

ScreenSite has been providing resources for those who teach and study
film/television since 1994. It contains academic job listings, course
syllabi, calls for conferences and film/video festivals, and the like.

In early June it was hacked and defaced. We decided to take this
attack as an opportunity and rebuilt ScreenSite from the ground up
(using Joomla, a content-management system). Yesterday, the new
ScreenSite went online for the first time. Most of its key data are
there, including:

* A listing of over 100 college film/TV programs
* Links to hundreds of film/TV syllabi
* Forums/bulletin boards for posting time-sensitive information such
as job openings and calls for festival entries.
* Information on over 150 film/TV journals/magazines.

Some things have not yet been converted to the new system (e.g.,
articles published on the original ScreenSite), but the transition
should be complete in a few weeks.

Please note: If you have linked to ScreenSite's resources in the
past, you will need to redo your links as their online locations have
changed. Sorry for this inconvenience.

Registration is optional (and free) on ScreenSite. There are a very
few aspects of the site that are only available to registered users,
but all of the resources listed above do not require registration for
access. (If you were registered with the old ScreenSite, you'll need
to create a new account on this new system)

ScreenSite remains a free resource, open to all. It is sponsored by
the Telecommunication and Film Department at the University of Alabama.

Please drop by the new and help us test it and expand
it. Add a link to a new syllabus you've just put online. Post a
call for papers. Announce a newly released (academic) book.

And let me know if you run into any glitches or problems or have any
suggestions for improving Screensite.
