  • Our “WineGame” Best Post Modern Film honor has revealed the 48 Hours Film Countdown to be another efficient, fast, liberally awarding program for which WFCN is now famous! We at Walker Entertainer Academy only wish that this Festival and others would reciprocate by placing a quick review on its awarded films’ WFCN submission platform.
