We have our videos out for the public in three groupings: feature films in
title alphabetical order (no genre groupings), television series
(Masterpiece Theater, A&E dramatic series, British comedy series, et al.),
and nonfiction with Dewey numbers.
This works for us, though I can see a case for genre groupings if your
feature film collection is fairly large.
