Cucalorus Crowdfunding

Join us on Wednesday, July 17 as we launch this year’s Kickstarter Campaign. RSVP Here!

Cucalorus Festival will launch its annual crowdfunding campaign in February to support filmmakers, performers, and entrepreneurs attending the 25th annual festival! The non-competitive festival is hosted in downtown Wilmington, NC and runs from November 13-17, 2019. 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 will reach even higher this year for their 25th anniversary!
