CENTURY 21 Sweyer & Associates is proud to sponsor Cucalorus this year for their 25th anniversary. To enhance the visitors experience at the festival, C21 Sweyer worked with Cucalorus to create an map of Downtown Wilmington which shows all of the event venues and also includes a self-guided tour of filming locations from the movie Blue Velvet which was filmed in Wilmington in 1986.
The Greater Wilmington Business Journal published this article on C21 Sweyer’s sponsorship, including more information on the map:
‘“We have filmmakers coming from all over the world who don’t realize that Blue Velvet was made here,” Brawley said about the iconic David Lynch film that came out in 1986, adding that in previous years many people had searched out the shooting locations themselves. The new map will make the search easier but will also draw increased attention to Wilmington’s history as a film destination.
Century 21 Sweyer & Associates’ owner and general manager Jeff Sweyer said his company was proud to be part of the festival’s 25th anniversary year.
“Deciding to sponsor Cucalorus was an easy decision, as this is a major cultural event in Wilmington,” he said in the release.’
