Adopt-a-Filmmaker hosts needed.
Have an extra room? Want to house an award-winning filmmaker? Contact the travel coordinator (travel@cucalorus.org) for this year’s festival to find out how you can provide housing for a visiting filmmaker. It’s very easy! Most filmmakers will be attending screenings and events all day and night. The festival provides lots of free food and offers transportation to the airport and to distant venues. We just need a warm bed and a friendly face. This program has become a tradition at Cucalorus and many filmmaker hosts become lifelong friends with the visiting artists. This is a great way to help the cultural community and you’ll get a couple of free passes to the festival. Contact our office for more info: 910-343-5995.
