Submit to the Cucalorus Festival
The 25th annual Cucalorus Festival takes place November 13-17, 2019 in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Known for its gorgeous riverside setting and its laid-back, rock n’ roll atmosphere, the non-competitive festival showcases more than 150 films from all over the world, a diverse selection of Stage performances and Connect Conference events. Cucalorus attracts an accumulated audience of over 19,000 cultural travelers who come to celebrate art and connect with peers. The festival’s spirited celebration has been recognized as a breeding ground for young artists, new ideas, and lifelong friendships.
Submissions made through Film Freeway are considered for a wide range of festival programs focusing on emerging and innovative filmmakers, North Carolina artists, social justice, student films, films by youth, shorts, and international cinema. The festival strives to showcase diverse, international artists of all ages, genders, races, economics, hairstyles, religions, and backgrounds.
The catalyst to Cucalorus Connect is the digital transformation that has changed the ways we live, work, and play. Through panel discussions, workshops, and speeches, innovative entrepreneurs and thought-leaders explore the impact of the digital transformation on the ways we manufacture and use products, consume services, and live and work in a world of always connected devices.
