Spotlight on Latinx Content Providers FREE and Open to the public Get Tickets Here
Los Angeles, CA — www.LatinHeatCinema.com, the U.S. over-the-top internet television service owned by LatinHeat Media, LLC will be hosting it’s first Spotlight on Latinx Content Producers event on March 16, 2017 at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes in downtown L.A. The event will consist of a screening and a Q&A with the content creators producers followed by a reception. LatinHeat Media is proud to partner with LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes to bring you this event.
Since launching in 2016 LatinHeatCinema has acquired a slate of content, which includes talk shows, web series, comedies, shorts and films, produced by Latinos.
With over 100 Spanish-language TV networks in the U.S. targeting Spanish-speaking audiences, LatinHeatCinema is the only OTT platform showcasing English-language content produced by Latinos.
“English-speaking Latinos are an audience which can no longer be ignored, and it’s an audience LatinHeatCinema was created to engage,” said Bel Hernandez, CEO of LatinHeat Media, LLC. “Millennials and the English-speaking 2nd, 3rd and even 4th generation Latinos are the new target audience.”
El Rey Network and even Univision’s own Fusion Network recognize the importance of this new target audience. Both networks launched in 2013 but follow leaders in this space, like FUSE TV, originally launched in 2004 as SI TV Network, then became NUVO TV before becoming FUSE. Also, Telemundo’s Mun2, which is now known as NBC Universo, caters to bilingual Latino audiences. Although the names of these networks have changed throughout the years, their target audience has remained the same.
LatinHeatCinema is also home to Latino content creators, where their stories are unapologetic of their Latino stories and their Latino casts, as Latino audiences have long been searching for more relatable content.
According to Nielsen, “[U.S.] Hispanics watch 90 minutes more digital video on devices than Americans on average. Despite the numbers, Hispanic viewers have limited options for online video keyed especially to their demographic, and content is scattered.”
The event on March 16th will showcase content and content creators while allowing them to talk about their stories and their journey. It is also an opportunity to inform audiences about latinheatcinema.com and where to view more like content. The event is open to entertainment industry insiders, press and the general public.
Special thanks to LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes for recognizing the value in promoting Latino content providers and their stories, through which we can redefine the Latino image worldwide.
