Humboldt native and filmmaker Maria Matteoli was already celebrating the inclusion of The Wine of Summer in Portugal's Douro Film Harvest
– she and her crew had flown to Porto to attend the world premiere of the movie they crafted during 2011 in Spain and the streets of Eureka's Old Town
– when things got even better.
"What in the..." Matteoli's Facebook post read, along with a photo of her holding some sort of fancy trophy. Another one just said, "Dude..."
The film's page
confirmed impressions. "And we won!!"
Congratulations to Humboldt's own international award-winning filmmakers!
