 I get asked the following fairly frequently, so I thought there might
 be some general interest in it...
----------------------------Original message----------------------------
I've logged into SCREEN-L for a while now and have enjyed the variety of
views and expressions.  I note, however, that there are other TV and
Cinema discussion lists mentioned in the 'statement' about screen-l.
Can you give me info on these other lists and how to join them?
Also, is there a way to list all the lists on internet?
-------------------------------end original message---------------------
 Lists that deal with film/TV related topics include (with their
 SCRNWRIT@TAMVM1      Screenwriting
 CINEMA-L@AUVM        General film discussion (the most active of all of these)
 FILM-L@ITESMVF1      General film discussion
 TV-L@TREARN          General TV discussion
 AMIA-L@UKCC          Association for Moving Image Archivists
 (These are all BITNET addresses, incidently, but most folks with Internet
 accounts should have no trouble reaching them.)
 To subscribe to any of these lists, send e-mail to the LISTSERV that
 runs the list.  Please note that the LISTSERV address is slightly
 different from the address of the list itself.  In each of the cases
 above, send e-mail to [log in to unmask]  So, to subscribe to CINEMA-L,
 send it to:
 In your e-mail, put the following command in the body of the message:
 SUBSCRIBE listname your-name
 Replace "listname" with CINEMA-L or whichever list you're joining and
 replace "your-name" with your name as you'd like it to appear on the
 list.  Thus, if I were subscribing to CINEMA-L, I'd send in the following:
 Now, if you want a big ol' list of every BITNET list you can have one
 mailed to you by sending e-mail to any LISTSERV (note:  use the LISTSERV
 address, not a list like SCREEN'L's) with the following command:
 Send this to, say, [log in to unmask], and you'll get a file mailed
 to you with a one-line description of every BITNET list known to
 man and woman.
 Anybody with any further pointers?  Lists of Internet (not BITNET)
      My advice to young actors?  Stay out of jail.
