Wilmington’s Cucalorus Film Festival is back!


November 10th - November 13th

Wilmington’s Cucalorus Film Festival is back! The festival is a showcase of independent and international film drawing artists from around the world and film fans from all over the country. Film, art, and community collide at the Cucalorus Film Festival each year drawing over 10,000 attendees and screening over 150 films from around the world. Cucalorus is the region’s premier cultural event, receiving international praise for high quality programming and Southern hospitality. The Brooks Institute named Cucalorus as one of the top ten film festivals in the United States and MovieMaker Magazine dubbed Cucalorus as one of the Top 25 Coolest Film Festivals.

Kenneth Price, UNCW graduate from 2003 will have his documentary “The Wonder Year” featured at this year’s festival. Kenneth Price holds a BA degree in Film Studies from UNCW and an MFA in Film and Video Production from UNCG. Price had early success as an editor on a handful of films like Ben Fancy's The Calming (Cucalorus 2006), Sadie's Waltz (Cucalorus 2007), and Deconfliction (Cucalorus 2007). As a director, Price's short films The Late Mr. Mokun Williams and First Sunrise both screened at Cucalorus. But Price is probably best known as the buttoned down partner with Jonathan Guggenheim and Cory Howard on the feature films Lightning Salad Moving Picture and Americatown, two crafty DIY comedies based on the comedic stylings of the supercomedy, superduo the Superkiiids. More recently, Price has been directing music videos for a variety of hip hop artists including 9th Wonder, Actual Proof, Skyzoo, Rapsody, and The Away Team. The Wonder Year is Price's first documentary feature.
