We are thrilled to announce that Director Consuelo Alba of Veremos Productions received a Santa Cruz NEXTie award on May 30th for her work as a Filmmaker telling local stories and as a Co-founder of the Watsonville Film Festival.
Each year, Santa Cruz NEXT honors a select group of entrepreneurs, environmentalists and civic-minded leaders who ‘go above and beyond’ in terms of making Santa Cruz County a better place to live.
“I’m honored to receive this distinction,” says Consuelo, “I’m proud to be able to help tell a few of the many important stories here through my filmmaking, and to help bring stories from the outside that we can share here, as a community, through the Watsonville Film Festival.”
You can read more about the work of Consuelo and the other honorees in the Good Times Weekly: Read the article here.
