hi john,

thanks for responding. the screenings are in early september or i should say in montreal its on 17th and on the 15th at saw video in ottawa. i am going to stay in canada till end of october so if you think you might know somewhere? i can try to stay longer especially in toronto. i need to go there anyways.

i did speak with yyz and the  program committee really liked the program but they decided that they will no longer do screenings. anyways they were really great with me! as for the pleasure dome....same! tom taylor was wonderful and all the support from there whether the program got accepted or not is much appreciated!

so i am not sure what you mean by short notice but.....

be well...........miriam
