Logistics, Fees & Registration Details
While we have done our best to keep the cost down, we understand that attending Wandering Cinema is a substantial financial commitment, especially for a younger filmmaker. We are committed to making this experience an excellent value, and we believe that the opportunity to dive deep into creativity and learn from the retreat leaders, visiting filmmakers, and each other is invaluable and something that doesn't happen often. We hope you will agree.
In addition to transportation from Madrid to the retreat location and back, along with 7 nights of comfortable lodging, the retreat fee includes all meals, a generous amount of wine and everything you will need to have a wonderful experience. From the time we collect you before the retreat you won't need to spend a cent until we bring you back, and you'll be able to totally disconnect,with everything taken care of, in an inspiring and relaxing environment where your brain can run free!
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
A $300 deposit will be required to confirm participation, $150 is nonrefundable.

This year for Wandering Cinema we'll be traveling to the Spanish region of Segovia, 1.5 hours drive north of Madrid. We've reserved the the renaissance palacio in Hoyuelos that was the filming location for the incredible 1973 film Spirit of the Beehive. This historic stone building is centered on a shady courtyard, surrounded by gardens and has a private swimming pool.
Our goal is to feel total immersion in our inspiring surroundings while building relationships with each other, so Wandering Cinema is not designed to be a sightseeing experience. You are encouraged to extend your trip to enjoy the sights and culture of Spain.
Arrival and Departure
The closest airport is Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport (MAD) and transportation will be provided between Madrid and the retreat location, a 1.5 hour drive.
On arrival day you'll be picked up in central Madrid at 10:30am. Arriving a few days early to enjoy this dynamic city is a great idea! On departure day, we will take you back to the city. Please don't book a flight departing before 1:30pm.
Kat is very happy to help you with your flights and travel arrangements!
