WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Wilmington’s Cucalorus film festival announced on Friday the lineup of films and programs for its 27th annual festival, which will take place Nov. 10-14.

This year’s festival will be an in-person event, with organizers requiring attendees to provide proof of vaccination and to wear masks during all indoor activities. Last year, Cucalorus only held virtual and drive-in events due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The annual festival, which dates back to 1994, typically includes around 100 films each year. The official line-up for the 2021 festival is expected to be announced later this week.

In the meantime, organizers announced the films that will be shown in the horror-tinged Convulsions series, include “Hellbender,” “The Scary of Sixty-First,” “Bad Luck Banging or Looney Porn,” and the secret screening of an unannounced film, will take place Nov. 11-14.

The “Bus to Lumberton,” an interactive homage to David Lynch’s movie ‘Blue Velvet’ which was filmed in the Wilmington area in the mid-1980s, will take place on Nov. 13.

Returning to Cucalours this year will be “Dance-a-lorus,” a live stage mash-up of dance and film, will take place Nov. 14.
