"Cucalorus is a joyful amalgamation of interdisciplinary art, a top-quality selection of international and local films, and an intimate bonding experience fueled by bonfires and moonshine." -- MovieMaker Magazine, 2013
Cucalorus seeks bold, innovative, funny, and challenging films for its November film festival. Known for its gorgeous riverside setting and its laid-back, rock n' roll atmosphere, Cucalorus is a five-day showcase of independent and international film. Filmmakers from all over the world join cultural explorers to watch movies and share ideas, transforming the port city's enchanting historic downtown into a temporary city of artists. The schedule pairs big name festival hits with a strong international program and a huge selection of shorts (more than 140 screened in 2013). An extensive community engagement campaign connects the daring documentaries in the Voices and Works-in-Progress programs with unexpected audiences.
