Cucalorus is a non-competitive festival focused on supporting innovative artists and encouraging creative exchange. The festival is held each November in historic downtown Wilmington, North Carolina with screenings of 150 films from around the world.
Cucalorus was voted "One of the top 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World" by MovieMaker Magazine, who described the film as:
"Cucalorus attendees brunch on boats (at midnight), drink moonshine and view 150 films over five days in quaint-meets-wacky Wilmington, North Carolina. “The town is steeped in a Blue Velvet vibe,” says a panelist, “and you half-expect to see David Lynch drinking a cocktail in the filmmaker lounge.” Or at least watch one of his movies. The festival is “geared to elevate filmmakers” and maintains its distinctively daring tastes with risks that “always pay off,” says another panelist, who adds: “All I can say is bonfires and karaoke—legit Southern hospitality.”
