Apart from our private events, we host filmmakers and their films from the Southern Circuit at Jengo’s. These screenings are partnered by UNCW Office of the Arts, WHQR Public Radio, Cucalorus, and Working Films. This project was supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources through the Spark the Arts program.

We hope to see you at a screening or two!
