Everything you need to know about the 2013 Cucalorus Film Festival November 13th-17th in Wilmington, NC
The film portion of the festival kicks off Nov. 14th when features and documentaries begin screening from morning to midnight at five different venues around town (see below).
Cucalorus was founded in 1994 by the underground filmmaking collective Twinkle Doon. At the inaugural event, crowds wrapped around the block to see 16 local films screening at Water Street restaurant by the Cape Fear River. These days Cucalorus Film Festival takes place every November, celebrating independent and international film for five days in the historic downtown riverfront of Wilmington, NC. In 2009 MovieMaker Magazine recognized it as one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals” and by the Brooks Institute as one of the “Top Ten Film Festivals”.
This fall, the 19th annual festival will showcase more than 200 films and attract thousands of cultural travelers, creative leaders and filmmakers who descend upon the Port City from Spain, Israel, Brazil and from more than 70 cities across the US. Cucalorus showcases bold, innovative filmmaking with programs dedicated to dance, emerging artists, North Carolina, social justice, works-in-progress, and global cinema. More than 300 exhibiting artists are in attendance each year – an incredible list of multi-media entrepreneurs with a passion for storytelling. Passes are officially on sale for the festival, taking place on November 13-17, 2013. [source: Cucalorus.org]
