Yaveo Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with First Two Weeks Free
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Sept. 18, 2015 — Yaveo is throwing its first-ever virtual film festival to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. The Spanish-language streaming entertainment service is a premier sponsor of the 2015 Cine+Más San Francisco Latino Film Festival.
Yaveo will show its support of Latino cinema in 2 more ways. A virtual film festival will run on the Yaveo streaming service from Sept. 21 - Oct. 18. And, Yaveo will extend its normal first week free offer to 2 weeks as part of this celebration.
The virtual film festival will stream award-winning and critically acclaimed films from Latin America, Europe and the U.S. It will feature 9 new films from this year’s Cine+Más festival, which runs from Sept. 18-27, and 3 films from previous festivals.
“Movies are at our core. We’re so excited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing these amazing films with our subscribers,” says Hanny Patel, senior director, Revenue and Product Marketing, DIRECTV, now part of the AT&T family. We are thrilled to partner with Cine+Más to deliver films and content to fans who are unable to attend the festival in person. From narrative features, documentaries, to short films, our virtual film festival has something for every movie lover.
"Yaveo brings high-quality Spanish-language content to the U.S. Hispanic community. It makes it easy to get content that they can't find anywhere else," said Lucho Ramirez, Cine+Más festival director. “Together we’ll bring new and diverse entertainment to this audience."
The purpose of the virtual film festival is to educate, entertain, and recognize the work of Latin American, Spanish, and U.S. Latino filmmakers— which otherwise may not be seen here in the U.S. Viva Pictures LLC. helped acquire the films.
