Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We at encore are celebrating 25 years of Cucalorus, which began as a one-day film fest at Water Street Restaurant in 1994. Founded by 12 filmmakers, known as Twinkle Doon, Cucalorus has grown into five days of film, plays, concerts, conferences, keynote speakers, parties and more! This week’s edition covers many events of the annual festival, as seen below. It all starts Wednesday, November 13.
