The Gullah Project continues to share its work and message with new audiences. Gullah Gone: Preserving the Land, Water, and Culture of the Sea Islands is screening on Thursday, November 8th at the Cucalorus Film Festival in Wilmington, North Carolina. The film is one of the selected works-in-progress featured at the festival. The Gullah Project is also part of the Cucalorus Works-in-Progress lab that runs November 4-7.
The Cucalorus Film Festival takes place November 7-11 in downtown Wilmington. Since being founded in 1994, Cucalorus takes place every year to celebrate independent film.
More than 300 films are screened each year, making it one of the largest film festivals in the South and is recognized as “One of the Coolest Film Festivals in the World” by Moviemaker Magazine for three years in a row.
The Works-in-Progress Lab focuses on strengthening the community impact of documentaries about social justice and supporting the development of African American filmmakers. W-in-Progress Lab includes community engagement events, public and private screenings, impact strategy sessions and one-on-one consultations.
The festival is an incredible opportunity and we wish our director, Denise McGill, and producer, Sherard Duvall, the best of luck. For more information about the event time and ticket prices, visit http://www.cucalorus.org/film/gullah-gone-preserving-land-water-culture-sea-islands-wip/.
