Cucalorus Announces Second 10x10 Filmmaking Challenge

By Jenny Callison, posted May 6, 2015
Ten local ventures will be on the silver screen at this year’s Cucalorus Film Festival as part of the festival’s second 10x10 filmmaking challenge, Cucalorus officials announced this week.

The challenge, which pairs 10 filmmakers with 10 entrepreneurs, is based on a film project screened at the 2011 festival, according to Cucalorus artistic director Dan Brawley. The initial attempt to create a 10x10 focused on startups premiered last year.

“Cucalorus ambassador Norwood Cheek first brought 10x10 to the 2011 festival as part of a retrospective of his work. In its original format, 10x10 paired filmmakers and bands together to produce a music video in less than a week,” Brawley said in the festival’s news release. “This new edition of 10x10 is an opportunity for business leaders to collaborate with filmmakers to create fun, fresh and engaging video content to promote new ventures.”

One of the project’s goals is to showcase the growing entrepreurship community in the Cape Fear region, the release stated.

“We had a great response last year, so we knew that this was an area for continued exploration and experimentation,” Brawley said in the news release.

Interested entrepreneurs should visit the Cucalorus website for additional information and application forms. Spots are open to young businesses in all industries, according to the website. The deadline for applications is June 10.
