Barrio movies: The Guadalupe announces winners of the San Antonio Neighborhood Film Project 2.0 

The winners of the city’s online Neighborhood Discovery Tours — a short-film project managed by the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center and the Office of Cultural Affairs meant to highlight the hidden and not-so-hidden treasures of San Antonio — will be announced and their movies screened this weekend at the Teatro Guadalupe.

Sixeen finalists from all corners of the city will show their movies Saturday and awards will be given; 13 films from the West and South sides will be shown on Sunday.

The finalists include Ya’ke Smith, R. Erik Bosse, Wade Capps, David R. García, Jacob Gonzales, Gen Gonzalez, Rod Guajardo, Veronica B. Hernández, Marvin Jiménez, Ralph López, Destiny Mata, Robin G. Morriss, Danny Puckett, Bryson Reno, Dustin Wenger, and Pablo Véliz.

“I’m very happy to be a finalist, but I’m up against a lot of really good people,” Veronica Hernández, president of the San Antonio chapter of NALIP (National Association of Latino Independent Producers) told the Current. Her eight-minute film, The Soul of the Eastside, shows “the soul of the people, the food, and the music” of the area.

“That neighborhood has a stigma of being a dangerous part of town, but it is actually a beautiful place. I hope I was able to convey that on my film.”
