About Cucalorus Film Festival

The 27th annual Cucalorus Film Festival takes place November 10-14, 2021 in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. The non-competitive festival showcases more than 90 films from all over the world. Filmmakers, performers, activists, and community members come to celebrate the art-form and discover new work. The festival's spirited celebration is a breeding ground for young artists, new ideas, and future collaborations. Festival programs focus on social justice, dance on camera, emerging voices, southern stories, horror & the bizarre, and the finest indie films of the year. Voted 'One of the Coolest Film Festivals in the World' and '50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee,' Cucalorus creates an opportunity for intimate engagement between audience and artist through the festival’s retreat-like atmosphere, resulting in friendships that extend far beyond the festival’s 5-day celebration.
