100 Films Retreat
As a result of 95th Academy Award® televised ceremony appearing Phillip E. Walker's opinion that "you don't get much out of a film festival that you don't attend", 100 Films Retreat is a brand new, live & in-person, unique combination of traditional Independent Film Festival and Professional Entertainment Industry Retreat.
Especially aiming to secure for indie filmmakers and video content creators a live & in-person WORLD PREMIERE and/or NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE of their work, in each quarterly session, Walker Entertainer Academy (WEA) strives to screen a single film or video from as many countries as possible. During our 5th session in May of 2024, we intend to screen a short film or video from 100 different countries!
As well, Official Selection priority will be given to WORLD PREMIERES whose filmmakers or content creators agree to attend the live & in-person event in Rancho Cucamonga, California 91737 USA, which is only 40 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, with convenient Metrolink commuter train transportation that will connect with America's first ever high-speed rail at Rancho's Cucamonga Station.
