The Cucalous Film Foundation has announced the addition of Anna Ray-Smith to the organization's seasonal staff, according to a news release.

Ray-Smith joins Cucalours as a programming coordinator.

She will support the foundation's programming department, maintaining relationships with filmmakers, artists and others who present during the Cucarlorus Festival in November and other Cucalorus events, officials said in the release.

“We paused for a few months as the landscape changed for this year and we’re super excited to be moving forward again. Anna brings so much to the team as a filmmaker, a NC-native, and a recent UNCSA grad," Rachel Taylor, Cucalorus managing director, said in the release.

Ray-Smith, a native of Laurinburg, has a "deep-rooted passion for the art of storytelling and the North Carolina film industry," stated the release.

She also spent more than two years teaching English and North American culture in Spain. She also produced two short films in Madrid.

Ray-Smith earned a bachelor's degree from East Carolina University. She also earned a master's degree from the School of Filmmaking at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
