Any message boards specifically for media profesionals?

Just curious if there are any boards out there to ask questions and share about the film / video business?

TIA

DVInfo.net forums. Mostly video camera and technical discussion. There's a fair number of people here who make short films, both hobbyist and aspiring pros, in addition to event and corporate videographers. Very helpful people at a lot of different expertise levels. Friendly and accessible, but pretty much all business.

Thanks for the replies.

I am primarily looking for a board with people who who work in the industry in the super non-glamorous positions like line producer, coordinator, and production manager.

Not sure if anything is out there.

For example, I have to manage an international shoot, and want to get some feedback on travel, and filling out a Carnet, etc.

While I do love the otter forum, I'm just looking for a forum that veers off track more often, and is just a little more surly and sarcastic to OP's questions...

Clearly you missed the fact that my recommendation of IMDb was slathered in sarcasm. Slathered, I tell you!

Yeah you beat me to it. Everyone over there is really savvy about cinema. Often you'll find someone who once watched 25 minutes of Casablanca on a PSP while ridding the bus. It doesn't get more informed than that.
