About this project

The 23rd annual Cucalorus Festival is almost upon us!! We are counting down the days till more than 300 filmmakers, performers, and entrepreneurs come from all over the world for five days of innovative films, original productions, and unconventional business. Cuc23 takes over downtown Wilmington, North Carolina from November 8-12, 2017, featuring over 250 films, 40 stage performances, and 50 Connect Conference events.

To build this well-oiled rock-n-roll machine called Cucalorus, we need YOU! While our monsters work on a magical Pega-Teleportation device, we need help bringing in the pioneering filmmakers, visionary artists, and startup wizards that make the Cucalorus experience as electrifying and inspiring as possible. Your pledge travels around the world picking up trailblazers in the film, comedy, oyster-farming, VR, and cabaret industries, so get those dollar bills flyin’!

This festival only flourishes because of the 23 years of continued support from our loyal Cucalorus fanatics. Help us expand to create new, powerful experiences for all the cultural travelers out there looking to collaborate, share, and learn. And get a custom Cuc23 freaker, poster, or discount pass while you’re at it! Cucalorus loves you, and we’ll see you in November!

About “The HILLIS Experience!” Reward :: Aaron Hillis was praised by Brooklyn Magazine as one of “The 100 Most Influential People in Brooklyn Culture,” alongside Lena Dunham, Spike Lee, and Lupita Nyong’o. Aaron is a Cucalorus board member and senior programmer. He is also a filmmaker, video-store owner, party crasher, and former contributor to The Village Voice, VICE, Vanity Fair, Variety, and other outlets that don’t start with V.

 

  

 

Dan Brawley, chief instigating officer :: danny boy was born in wilmington and watches too many movies. dan wanders around the world for about 4 months each year – mostly going to film festivals and conferences about social justice and culture. the brawler lives inside of the growing artist village with no name in downtown wilmington – two historic houses, a cabin, and twelve studios – with a micro-cinema, a garden with lots of weeds, and an enchanting collection of strange peoples and things. saint 43 has a dog named izzie. they walk a lot.

Blair Middleton, development director :: With a background in environmental science and massage therapy, Blair spends her days with her feet rooted in data and her hands crafting love bombs. She geeks out about human anatomy, costume parties, and lately, rock climbing. Blair believes every movie is better with snacks.

Rachel Taylor, programming coordinator :: Rachel studied theater as an undergrad and thought she wanted to be on stage, but soon discovered she prefers to be the one keeping everything organized and running smoothly. She started stage managing, house managing, and eventually moved into arts management. She’s worked for theaters and arts organizations in Boston, nonprofits in Wilmington, and received her Master of Public Administration with a focus on Nonprofit Management from UNC. Also a 500-hour registered yoga teacher, Rachel likes to be upside down and yoga with people as much as possible.

Channing Duke, operations manager :: Channing is a CFCC and UNCW graduate. This is her fourth year on staff at Cucalorus. A self-proclaimed mad scientist and outer space enthusiast, in her off time, Duke works on local film productions and is designing her own international space station.

Joey Toler, sponsorship coordinator :: Joey Toler is new to Cucalorus, but not new to working in the arts. Having just relocated to Wilmington after 3 tries in 10 years to be with his significant other, he leaves behind a job as Executive Director of the Beaufort County Arts Council in Washington, NC where he developed relationships with arts leaders across the state. He hopes that some of this experience will come into play in his new role with Cucalorus, and is very happy to be in a new environment with new challenges. He is especially excited about not being in charge.

Becca Ederer, communications coordinator :: Becca, a UNCW film studies graduate, is working her second year with Cucalorus. She loves all types of movies from Film Noir to Bollywood, and can often be found exploring the outdoors. After jumping out of several planes in South America, she hopes to one day have her skydiving license. Strike up a conversation and she’ll never stop talking, because she is your biggest fan!

Izzie, cucalorus mascot :: Relocated from a no-kill animal resort on the outskirts of Conway, South Carolina, Izzie is a Mini-Pin and Spaniel mix with a few unknown ancestral lines. Izzie works diligently to maintain staff morale by licking hands, faces, and other places. You can find her chewing sticks, practicing her stunt dog tricks, and looking out the window.

Our core staff is supported by dozens of seasonal staff members and hundreds of volunteers. Thanks to all those special humans who keep the Cucalorus spirit alive <3 

Risks and challenges

Each dollar raised through Kickstarter is matched multiple times over by income from sponsors, entry fees, ticket sales, and grants that support the execution of a successful Cucalorus.

During the five-day festival, we'll host over one hundred individual events at a host of intriguing locations. That's a lot of people and things to put in the right place at the right time.

Risks and challenges include technical mishaps, delayed flights, pimento cheese hangovers, box office mixups, a typo or two in the program guide, and popcorn breath. We've learned a lot about overcoming snafus in our twenty-two years as a film festival, and we're confident that we can handle the challenges and obstacles that lie ahead to bring you another year of high-quality film screenings, stage performances, and conference events.
