Distribution for Each film is owned by the person
who purchased distribution rights to that film.
There are no catalogues anywhere of these
arrangements. Each distributor creates a catalogue
of films for which they negotiated the rights--as
Cal Newsreel has done. And those rights are for
the region covered by the distributor--in the case
of Cal Newsreel, the U.S. That means you need to
find out who generally distributes African films
and request their catalogues; or go to each
filmmaker and ask her or him who has the rights.
