PRESS RELEASE: MIAMI, Florida (12/5/2013)– During the month of December, ViendoMovies will be releasing several high profile, award winning feature films with credited casts from various countries in Latin America; including films from Mexico, Spain, Chile, Argentina, and Venezuela. In keeping with the spirit of the holidays, the channel has selected many comedies to provide the audience with good laughs in front of the screen.
This selection of films goes with a change in the channel’s on-air look, in line with the network’s strategy to customize its presence for significant dates. ViendoMovies is a leader in the multicultural efforts within the Latino Pay TV landscape, conscious to the fact that this is a key component for both the immigrant and assimilated Latino populations.
“Habana Eva” kicks off the December line up on the 7th at 7PM with a story about a young seamstress who is frustrated with her lazy, yet good-looking boyfriend when she meets a sophisticated Cuban-Venezuelan who promises her a glamorous future.

Following at 9PM, enjoy the Spanish film “La Isla Interior” winner of “Best Actor” in the Valladolid International Film Festival and of “La Naranja de Buñuel” in the Ibero American Short Film Festival.

The audience can enjoy a comedy about a bank with a new director that believes the former rules and employees are no longer effective.
