Cucalorus Festival launches its annual crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to support filmmakers, performers, and entrepreneurs attending the 23rd annual festival! The non-competitive festival is hosted in downtown Wilmington, NC and runs from November 8-12, 2017. This year will feature more than 300 films, 40 stage events, and over 50 Connect Conference events. Cucalorus draws thousands of cultural travelers, creative leaders, industry innovators and artists from across the globe and over 70 U.S. cities each year – making it a uniquely diverse creative exchange. After six successful crowdfunding campaigns, Cucalorus reaches higher this year for a total goal of $45,000 (our largest ever!). The funds support artist and entrepreneur travel and equipment rental.

Cucalorus offers a range of rewards to backers: custom Freakers, posters, festival passes, and even your own craft made cocktail. You can pledge your support to this year’s festival by donating to the Kickstarter campaign or by simply sharing their project. Further details for the campaign can be found on our Kickstarter page.
