FESPACO, the Panafrican Film and Television Festival of Ouagadougou, was founded in 1969 and has grown into the largest African film festival. The festival takes place biennially and is held in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso. FESPACO is known for culturally consolidating African film; directors and producers are welcomed from all over Africa and the Diaspora. Films and television programs are submitted for jury consideration in the categories of feature films, short films, documentaries, television programs, and series/sitcoms.
The FESPACO Collection gathers flyers, publications, and other materials related to the festival, acquired on location by Indiana University professor Michael T. Martin between 2007 and 2017. The majority of the collection consists of flyers intended to advertise films or screenings, as well as bound publications issued by official FESPACO publishers or topically related publications by third parties. Also included are promotional flyers from African film production companies and advertisements for other film festivals taking place in Africa and Europe.
