Kinema Club is an informal group of scholars studying Japanese cinema and other moving image media (the name comes from a famous Taisho era movie theater in Kobe) which was formed out of the shared need for bibliographic information. Has information on holdings in North American libraries, links to Japanese production companies, film festivals, actors, data and search engines, a discussion of Noel Burch's, To the Distant Observer, a guide to film specialty bookstores in Japan, and how to find prints in the US. Extremely useful.
Also provides links to online criticism and a searchable database of books and articles on Japanese media.
