A Film exchange, retreat, and party in the desert. Where making something cool is most important. Open air theater, in the desert, fueled and full of filmmakers.

Hosted in Joshua Tree, CA. Filmchella screens interesting films in a dreamlike atmosphere, think Alice in Wonderland. There will be parties and seminars during the day, with films and star shows at night. Complete sensory overload.
