An interesting question, Oksana. The three publications I look at

The Independent (American Independent Video & Film Assn)
Video Librarian
DV (Digital Video)
Literature film quarterly
Laser Disc Newsletter

The Facets supplements are essential, of course...

I'm a big fan of the FIAF CD-ROM and Film Literature Index
