Attending an Oscar Party hosted by Cucalorus is, in and of itself, a guarantee of a good time, but the Soul City team had an additional reason to celebrate walking the red carpet in Wilmington. Monica Berra, SheRea DelSol and Gini Richards were in attendance to receive a $1,000 grant from the Cucalorus Film Festival’s “Filmed in NC” Fund.
This newly launched program supports the production of indie film and video projects by artists who are permanent residents of North Carolina or who are full-time students at colleges or universities in North Carolina. The program prioritizes funding for female filmmakers and African American and Latino artists.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with such a wonderfully supportive festival,” said the team. As grant recipients, the filmmakers will return to Wilmington to screen Soul City at the Cucalorus Film Festival in November.
