By David Lewis DAKAR (Reuters) - The Oscar nomination of "Timbuktu", a film about the occupation of the Malian desert town by al Qaeda-linked Islamists in 2012, should not mask the lack of established cinema from West Africa, its director said. Up for the Best Foreign Language Film at Sunday's ceremony, Abderrahmane Sissako's film has already won two awards at this year's Cannes Film Festival and seven at the Cesar Award's, France's equivalent of the Oscars. Despite being home to FESPACO, a biennial film festival held in Burkina Faso, and Nollywood, Nigeria's cinema industry that churns out hundreds of films every years, Sissako called for West African leaders to do to more to promote regional film making "Being nominated is great for the continent and Mauritania ... (But) You cannot say that cinema is established because there is a festival," Sissako told Reuters, speaking from the United States. Sissako was born in Mauritania but spent some of his school years in Mali. More »'Timbuktu' director wants more cinema from West Africa
