    Hello, Julie. Congratulations on your journal. I am unclear from your
    message whether the upcoming special issue of Border/Lines will use
    material ONLY on Black Canadian films and films shown at the Toronto
    Festival OR if you also want materials on African films in general.
    Thank you for your clarification.
    Suzanne MacRae
