I'm glad to see all the other journals being mentioned; I do have a
correction to a previous post.  The NCA (National Communication
Association) journal is now called "Critical Studies in Media
Communication."  I didn't include in my original post because it
publishes more than film; however, film studies have been part of it
from the start.  It has a very good reputation in the Communication
discipline.

To the traditional print journals that have already been suggested, I
would
add:

Journal of Film and Video (UFVA)
Critical Studies in Mass Communication (NCA)
Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media (BEA)

And I'd like to pose a related question:

Have any online-only journals been able to establish a serious academic
rep
yet?

E.g., Postmodern Culture (which, of course, is not just a media
studies
journal) has been around since 1990.  Have academics found it useful
getting jobs, promotions, and/or tenure?
