With the recent handover/return of Hong Kong to mainland China's control, this is an especially opportune time to look at the past, present, and future of Hong Kong film. For a special issue devoted to this topic (tentatively scheduled for publication in late 1998), the journal _Post Script_ invites manuscripts which cumulatively look at Hong Kong movies and the Hong Kong movie industry from a variety of methodological and historical perspectives. Suggested topics/approaches include, but are not limited to: 1. Institutional analyses (e.g., the organization of the movie industry in different historical eras; studies of film production companies and distributors; film exhibition; the contemporary industry in transition). 2. Studies of directors, actors, and other film workers. 3. Analyses of stylistic tendencies in Hong Kong movies. 4. Studies of film movements (e.g., the Hong Kong New Wave), genres amd cycles. 5. Close analyses of individual films. 6. Considerations of the Hong Kong movie audience (domestic and international). 7. Explorations of topics and time periods underrepresented to date in English-language scholarship (e.g., martial arts movies of the 1960s and 1970s; the relationship between Cantonese and Mandarin film production; the relationship among the movie, music, and television industries in Hong Kong). We also encourage the submission of substantial interviews with film industry personnel, English translations of significant, previously published essays and articles (with copyright permissions secured), book reviews, and relevant filmographies and annotated bibliographies. The issue will be published in English; nonetheless, we welcome the submission of essays originally written in Chinese (or other languages) which have not been previously published. We regret that an English version of such materials will be required for the monolingual guest editor to read them; however, if a more polished translation is needed of manuscripts selected for publication, this _may_ be possible to arrange. Manuscript length: maximum 25 pages, including documentation. Documentation: MLA style (internal documentation, with works cited). Deadline for submissions: April 1, 1998.
