RANCHO CUCAMONGA, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2024 / — First of all, see the video embedded below of how 3rd District City Council Member Ryan A. Hutchinson’s February 1st pronouncement at the Shiloh retreat facility in Southern California 91737 USA invoked the 100 Films Retreat #4 kick-off of 2024 Black History Month Celebrations in Rancho Cucamonga. Councilman Hutchinson will soon be presented with his official Dignitary Attending Bronze Medallion.

Since 57 countries were Officially Selected for 100 Films Retreat’s inaugural May 2023 quarter, 79 different countries Selected in its August second quarter of screenings, 85 countries for its December 100 Films Retreat #3 and 53 countries on 7 continents were represented during this month’s 100 #4 African Diaspora 2024 quarter, our May 2024 fifth quarter is on track to reach its original goal of Officially Selecting short movies, films and/or videos from 100 different countries to launch its second year of screenings in the City that is building America’s first ever high-speed rail hub – Cucamonga Station. Traditionally Selecting works on a first come-first served basis, the first short from each new country that supplies to 100 Films Retreat #5: (1) or downloading of their under 15 minutes in length FILM/VIDEO, (2) a high-resolution digital file of that Short’s POSTER plus (3) their Production’s under 29 seconds in length COMMERCIAL, will be Officially Selected to represent their country via screening and competing for that quarter’s Grand Prize, Best Film Commercial and Top Movie Poster. As only India, Iran and USA representatives have already been Officially Selected to date, we continue to be open to your video or film representing your Country during May of 2024.

Therefore, since FREE submission categories are available until this month’s end, submitting as early as possible is the action that not only saves you money on your submission fee, but is also the way to have your production quickly become a part of this totally international independent gathering. So, submit right NOW at and let’s get your art Selected. Because Selection announcements are made on an as-soon-as-qualified basis, there will be no waiting for months to know that your work made the cut, like what happens with most live & in-person film festival events.

USA based video/film submissions are also being accepted for 100 Films Retreat #6 August 15-19, 2024 showcasing.

With 100 Films Retreat now qualified, May 2024 Official Selections will be listed therein, in addition to Nominees and Awardees being identified in that professional debase.

Plus, physical trophies, medallions, certificates, magnetic laurels, etc. will eventually be shipped to winners at the Retreat’s cost.

Furthermore, Walker Entertainer Academy is currently preparing to deliver a major proposal to the City of Rancho Cucamonga Economic Development office that, if funded, will result in an exciting new public screening venue which will be added to the current 100 Films Retreat facility. Your submitting before that new screening venue is announced, will ensure that your production gets Officially Selected in advance of the rush of filmmakers and video content creators that will submit to compete as a result of this upgrade.

More importantly, filmmakers who attend their 100 Films Retreat live & in-person Film Festivaling block will be honored at a level that they have never before received!
