    Dear Manu,

    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.
