I have a question for those of you with some familiarity with foreign  
film cultures. What is the longest-running film journal you can think  
of?

In Japan, this would be Kinema Junpo (http://www.kinejun.com). This  
magazine has published more or less continuously since 1919. More or  
less because the government consolidated film periodicals during WWII  
to save money and facilitate censorship. Kinema Junpo was amalgamated  
with a few other publications, and they changed the name to Eiga Junpo  
(to expunge the English loan word "kinema" and substitute and Japanese  
term for film). After the war, it sputtered to new life under a few  
different regimes and is now an impressive, thick, glossy, bi-monthly  
publication.

Does anyone know journals with longer runs than this?
