To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, Yaveo, the Spanish-language streaming platform, is holding its first virtual film festival together with Cine+Mas San Francisco Latino Film Festival, which is also the sponsor.

The virtual festival will run on the Yaveo streaming service from 21 September to 18 October. The Hispanic platform will also extend its normal first week free offer to two weeks as part of the celebration.

The Yaveo virtual film festival will stream award-winning and critically acclaimed films from Latin America, Europe and the US, featuring nine new films from this year's Cine+Mas festival and three from previous festivals.

Films will include Two Waters (Costa Rica), 3 Beauties (Venezuela), Conducta (Cuba), Viento Aparte (Mexico), Blue Lips (Spain/Argentina), Two Days of Luck (Mexico), The Deadman (Peru), Parabellum (Argentina), Soledad (US), Life After (Argentina), Living Quechua (US) and Farewell (Brazil).

"We are thrilled to partner with Cine+Mas to deliver films and content to fans who are unable to attend the festival in person," said Hanny Patel, senior director, revenue and product marketing, DirecTV. "From narrative features and documentaries to short films, our virtual film festival has something for every movie lover."

The platform streams Spanish-language content to the US Hispanic community, which can watch on-demand movies, TV series, novelas, kids' programming, documentaries and music. The content comes from trusted Spanish programmers such as Canal Once, Caracol, Galavision, MTV, Nickelodeon, RCN, Telemundo, Tr3s, UniMas, Univision, Vemox and Video Rola.
