Cucalorus Film Festival passes on SALE!

Cucalorus Headquarters is tickled fancy to announce that passes to the 18th Cucalorus Film Festival, November 8-11, are officially on sale as of August 15th. Discounts for passes will be available until September 30.  Be on the look out for this year’s monsters as the festival motif gets geared up to to celebrate the olympic talents of some of the world’s finest filmmakers.

This progressive southern film festival takes place in the enchanted historic district of Wilmington, North Carolina. Cucalorus is a non-profit that has been building a constructive community of creative individuals  for the past 18 years, extending support for resident artists, film-makers, choreographers, gypsies and aspiring youths. It is a non-competitive showcase of inspired feature films, enlightening documentaries, sequined shorts and bedazzled music videos from around the globe.  The festival, which screens more than 150 works each year from at least 20 different countries, has been called a “breeding ground for artistic appreciation and good times alike” by MOVIEMAKER magazine.

In addition to spirited and innovative films, this year’s festival will include Dance-a-lorus, a live performance featuring cultivated collaborations between choreographers and filmmakers.  The festival’s newest experimental showcase, Visual Soundwalls, has been expanding to become a sought-after reputable exhibit, with daily programs featuring independent music videos and interactive works on film. This year’s North Carolina retrospective artist, Jim Haverkamp, will orchestrate the first Strange Beauty Challenge, in which 13 filmmakers will be given a varietal selection of archival footage to create a short film in less than a week.

A quirky cultural experience for all humans, non-humans and monsters, Cucalorus has been one of Wilmington’s largest festivals for nearly two decades, so be sure to get your passes early. Festival attendees can take advantage of discounts on Pegasorus, Megasorus and Digasorus passes until September 30. The festival will hold its first ever Launch Party this fall, and all pass-holders are invited to suit up and get down on September 30.
