Cucalorus is a multi-disciplinary arts organization supporting emerging and innovative artists through our annual film festival, a residency program, a community cinema, and an extensive community engagement program. More than 28 years in the making, Cucalorus has since grown into one of the most important film festivals in the South. More than 150 films screen each year at venues all over downtown Wilmington, attracting a large number of participating artists (350+) and thousands of fans and industry professionals. Festival programs focus on dance, music videos, emerging artists, social justice, works-in-progress, and international cinema. Cucalorus education and outreach programs include Global Perspectives, Works-in-Progress Lab, Latino Lens, Media Literacy, and Racial Rewind.
