    You might begin with the Fespaco and Fespaci office and appointed
    officers, as they have hosted other Fulbright scholars to do the same
    thing in past years( as recent as 1994). The new film archive in BF was
    completed that year as well. You can request documentation from Fulbright
    excerpts of or descriptions(if not the proposal itself) of
    projects/scholars funded.

    all the best,

    Portia Cobb
    and from Steve Smith - The FESPACO folks can be reached care of Yoda at
