Slideshow for a group with photos sorted by interestingness can be done with the official Flickr slideshow app (Flash), eg:

Interesting, but it currently can't show photos from a group.
Also, there's no shortcut to access the current's photo's page, only to go to the photo's author's page, which makes it hard to get information on a photo you like.

Piclens via Flickr Leech can do that quite well. Except it's more of a manual process and can't act as a screensaver. But maybe it could be scripted... :)

I wish there was a way to show images from specific groups. It can be difficult to find the perfect tags and/or users. Any suggestions/favorites?

There's a few things out there that do just about the same thing, but of all I've tried this is both the easiest to use and the best working.
