Cucalorus Film Festival

Building a Better Wilmington: Giving and Volunteering in the Port City was conceptualized and overseen by Dr. Jeffrey L. Brudney, Betty and Dan Cameron Family Distinguished Professor of Innovation in the Nonprofit Sector at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW). The film was produced by undergraduate and graduate students at UNCW. The film features interviews with individuals from many walks of life who are actively involved in enriching the Wilmington community. Volunteers from local nonprofit organizations, musicians, activists, and community leaders discuss topics such as the personal rewards of involvement, how to get involved, and the importance of giving and volunteering in Wilmington. The film aims to encourage student film making and to inspire participation in the community.
