    Dear friends of BorderLines Magazine and
    The Toronto International Film Festival

    We thought you might be interested in an upcoming issue of
    Border/Lines Magazine. If you or anyone in your organization are
    interested in contributing to this issue or you would simply like to
    know more about it, please get in touch with us by August 25th.

    ***Black Filmmaking and 1997 Toronto International Film Festival***
    A Special Issue of Border/Lines Magazine

    Publication date: February/March 1998

    Border/Lines will publish a special issue in conjunction with the
    Planet Africa and Perspective Canada program of the Toronto
    International Film Festival.

    Planet Africa is devoted to films from Africa and, more importantly
    for our magazine, the African diaspora. Launched in 1995 the series
    has grown into a strong force featuring leading as well as emerging
    filmmakers from around the world. To this point, in our country, it
    has not had an accompanying text which emphasizes, disseminates and
    critiques the program from a Canadian perspective. We will also look
    at black filmmakers and their films included in the Film Festival1s
    Perspective Canada program.

    This issue promises to be an invaluable collection of work by leading
    Canadian cultural critics and cultural practitioners and those who
    specialize in Black Canadian popular cultural and filmmaking.
    Border/Lines will present this material through reviews, feature
    stories, literary works and photography. For International Film
    Festival aficionados as well as those interested in Canadian culture
    generally, this issue will be a must.

    Because of our Utne Reader Award we have increased our distribution
    and have an expanded profile thus you can be assured that publicity
    will be generated and an international audience found for this special

    Deadline for intent to contribute: August 25, 1997
