ScreenSite facilitates the teaching and research of film/TV/new media and is designed principally for educators and students.
But everyone is welcome!
ScreenSite first emerged in 1994 during the Paleolithic era of the Web. In 2003 we mounted a major renovation. After a technical issue took us down in June 2006, we overhauled the site again. Then, in 2011, we couldn't resist fiddling with its design one more time. This time around we decided to stress its function as a link directory, but with the occasional article.
In 2012 we officially partnered with the Society for Cinema and Media Studies to augment their directory of online resources.
