To stand in front of someone who is trying to shot or walk in a direction in a video game. Occurs with teammates because in many video games your bullets and abilities will not travel through teammates to hit enemies, but enemies projectiles will travel through both your teammate and you. In games which punish players for damaging teammates it can be used as a type of trolling It can be done unintentionally, but the person being screened almost never benefits from it.
Bro wtf, stop screening me. We would've won if my dumbass teammate wasn't screening me

usually an indie movie or film. When this word is used, I tend to imagine that it is cheaper or free as opposed to when it's CALLED a movie or a flm.

Indie elitists use this term to sound cool, as do I.
1. Let's go watch the (insert film here) screening tonight.

2. I heard they're screening (insert film her) at (x location). Let's go watch.
