With the end of Hispanic Heritage Month on the 15th of this month we wanted to look back on the ways customers, Comcasters and our community were able to celebrate the month-long celebration!
Xfinity curated an exclusive collection of bilingual and bicultural movies, TV shows, music and more, to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. This collection of diverse content has been assembled to inspire, educate, and entertain viewers as our nation celebrated the special month together. The collection, titled, “¡Mi gente, presente!” included recommendations from Hispanic celebrities, concerts from top Latin artists and even a social media dance challenge.
If you follow Comcast and Xfinity on social media you may have also seen the four incredibly talented content creators we featured across our platforms. Comcast partnered with Kathy Cano-Murillo, Barniela Aléman, Sam Kirk, and Reyna Noriega to commission original pieces that express what Hispanic Heritage Month means to them.
Locally, we were proud to sponsor the Cine+Mas San Francisco Latino Film Festival for the 13th year. This festival ran from October 1 to 17 and was held both online and in-person. Some of the films included:
- JAGUAR MAN – Directed by Vinícius Reis (Brazil)
- LOVE & BASEBALL- Directed by Steve Acevedo (USA)
- RICOCHET- Directed by Rodrigo Fiallega (Mexico)
- DREAMS OF CHONTA- Directed by Monica Cohen (Colombia)
Comcast employees also celebrated monthlong with events that highlighted the culture, history and diversity within the Hispanic community. Employees attended events like a DJ Rahsaan and Domino Saints virtual concert, educational series’ including “Afro-LatinX Influence in Popular Culture” and “We Are Not Extinct – An Introduction to Taino Identity and Culture”, an event with Chicago’s premier Tropical music band, Chicago Latin Groove and many others!
We are closing Hispanic Heritage Month looking back on all the things we learned and shared during this month, knowing that the celebration will only continue.
