HITN and Chocolarte Cinema Win 3 Awards at the 6th Ponte Los Cortos Festival with the Short Film “When We Disconnect, We Connect”

By HITN

12 young people participated in the innovative digital cinematography program

San Juan, Puerto Rico– HITN in alliance with Fundación Cortés and its Third Edition of the Young Filmmakers program, participated for the third consecutive year in the Ponte los Cortos Youth Film Festival. “Through these last three Festivals, we have seen the evolution of Chocolarte Cinema, which has distinguished itself by winning high-value awards in our Ponte Los Cortos Festival (FPLC), which explores careers. The core of this youthful production house, supported by a solid group of educators, has positioned itself with each Festival, and they are the prototype of the demographic we want to impact. With each Festival, we have witnessed great results given their acquired experience, commitment, and passion. Chocolarte Cinema’s work remains a great legacy in the world of youth cinematography,” said Rob Ortiz, founder, and producer of the Festival.

The Young Filmmakers Summer Program uses real life experiences that aims to improve participants’ digital literacy skills while undertaking an original filmmaking project. Last summer, 12 young people between 12 and 18 years old participated; the majority of students from public schools, inadequate resources, and residents of communities near Old San Juan. The short film, “When We Disconnect, We Connect,” garnered seven nominations at the FPLC. “I can only feel pride in what has been achieved by these young people. They achieved their goal which was to compete again this year at the Ponte Los Cortos Festival. In just two weeks, they managed to make a great short film that led to winning three awards: BEST MEN’S CAST, BEST TIME BAROMETER AND BEST SHORT FILM in the junior category”, said Yanira Meléndez, Manager of Funded Initiatives at HITN Puerto Rico and in charge of the program. For her part, Nahir Moreno, film teacher of the program, said, “Once again we demonstrated how much we can achieve when we set our mind to it, in spite of the limitations.”

This last Young Filmmakers program was in July 2019, during the protests which forced the resignation of Governor Rosselló, which significantly impacted Puerto Rican society. “Our program is in the facilities of the Cortés Foundation in Old San Juan, we were in the place where everything happened, it was challenging and educating at the same time,” added Yanira Meléndez.

Puerto Rican Peoples Day Parade

42nd Annual Puerto Rican People’s Day Parade Goes Virtual With a Call for Census Participation

By HITN

Chicago Latinos will be able to celebrate one of their most important cultural events with a virtual parade on June 20 from Paseo Boricua.

Brooklyn, NY – The Puerto Rican People’s Day Parade is going to look and feel a little different this year as the celebration goes virtual to keep the community safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. The Puerto Rican Cultural Center (PRCC) and HITN-TV have joined forces to commemorate the 42nd edition of this popular parade on June 20 with an online rendition that will celebrate Puerto Rican heritage and culture in Chicago.

In this time of the COVID-19 epidemic, and these trying moments in the struggle for social and racial justice, the Puerto Rican Cultural Center is honored to present, in partnership with HITN, our virtual 42nd Puerto Rican People’s Day Parade. As we celebrate the rich legacy of our cultural roots through our music and our art, we will also promote the making of our collective aesthetics as exemplified with the historical markers of the 25th Anniversary of our Flags of Steel and the 20th Anniversary of our national museum- the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture, among other historical achievements,” stated José E. López, Executive Director at PRCC.

A longstanding tradition that celebrates cultural pride and awareness, the parade recognizes Puerto Ricans’ historical impact in the heart of Chicago’s Humboldt Park community. This special virtual presentation will also be dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Humboldt Park Vocational Education Center, the 20th anniversary of the Humboldt Park Public Library in Troy, the 15th anniversary of the UrbanTheater Company, and the 15th anniversary of Muévete.

Amidst the festive atmosphere, this year, in particular, organizers are making a special call to the entire Latino community residing in Chicago to participate in the 2020 Census, reiterating the importance of being counted to ensure accurate representation at every level of government to have an active voice and influence in the changes and policies that affect minority communities the most.

The parade will be streamed live on HITN.TV/PARADE and PRCC-CHGO.ORG on Saturday, June 20, from 2 pm to 3 pm CDT.

The virtual parade will feature remarks from State Senator Omar Aquino (D-Chicago), State Representative Delia C. Ramirez (D-Chicago), Jessie Fuentes, Co-Chair of the Puerto Rican Agenda, Dr. Jesus Hernandez Burgos, Director of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center’s Public Health Initiatives, Roberto Maldonado, alderman of the 26th Ward of the city of Chicago, and Billy Ocasio, Executive Director of the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture.

State Senator Omar Aquino commented, “I whole heartedly join in on the celebration of the 42nd Parade of the Puerto Rican People. This celebration fills me with joy. Growing up in this Puerto Rican neighborhood in Chicago, and as its Senator, I want to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the installation of the two largest steel flags in the world, which shape our dear Paseo Boricua. This celebration for me, constitutes an act that fills me with joy, since I am the son of this Puerto Rican neighborhood of Chicago, and as its Senator I want to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the installation of the two largest steel flags in the world, which frame our dear Paseo Boricua.

And he adds, “At the same, I also wish to congratulate the foundation of the only Puerto Rican Museum in the United States, the National Puerto Rican Museum of Art and Culture on its Twelfth Anniversary. I want to urge everyone to fill out the 2020 Census. If, you don’t get counted in the 2020 Census, you don’t count!

State Representative (Assemblywoman) Delia Ramirez says, “I am Delia Ramírez and I am extremely proud to represent the 4th District of the State of Illinois, the district with the highest concentration of Puerto Ricans. I stand in solidarity with the Puerto Rican people and as such, I am co-author of a bill that would preserve and maintain the cultural preservation district called Puerto Rico Town, which encompasses the area of Division Street from Western Ave to Kostner Ave. This would not only help promote business and commerce, but also put an end to the displacement of our people.” She adds, “Celebrate this virtual 42nd Parade of the Puerto Rican People broadcast with me. If you don’t get counted in the 2020 Census, you don’t count!
There will be performances and special appearances from AfriCaribe, Ivelisse “Bombera de Corazón” Díaz, Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, UrbanTheater Company, Miss Universo Latina Plus 2019, Valeria Méndez, and the Miss Gay Puerto Rico Organization.

Alzheimers Association

HITN TV and Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter Join Forces in a Public Service Campaign

By HITN

The campaign, featuring Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams highlights the disproportionate impact of Alzheimer’s and dementia on black and Hispanic communities

Brooklyn, NY – HITN TV, in collaboration with The Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter announced today the launch of a new public service campaign, featuring Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. The campaign video, which is available in English and Spanish, highlights Alzheimer’s disproportionate impact on black and Latino communities and encourages all viewers to call the Alzheimer’s Association nationwide, 24/7 Helpline if they or someone they love is experiencing memory problems. HITN will add the educational video to its programming grid to inform Spanish-speaking audiences on June 15 in recognition of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.

The COVID-19 pandemic did not put other public health crises on hold – but it has laid bare how these health crises disproportionately affect communities of color. Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects a significant number of Black and Hispanic New Yorkers, and it also takes a significant emotional toll on the loved ones of people suffering from this disease. I am proud to have partnered with HITN TV and The Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter on this important public awareness campaign to ensure those living with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones can weather these difficult times,” said Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President.

The majority of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias are over age 65, putting them at the highest risk for complications from COVID-19,” said Christopher Smith, executive director of the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter. “Living with Alzheimer’s or providing care for someone with the disease is always challenging, but COVID-19 has forced all affected to quickly recalibrate. We are committed to raising awareness and making sure everyone knows the Alzheimer’s Association is here to help, especially in the communities that are most impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia. We thank Borough President Adams for using his voice to help the Alzheimer’s Association to increase concern and awareness around this important issue.

HITN continues to dedicate resources and take actions to support the Spanish-speaking community in the face of the COVID-19 health crisis,” said Michael D. Nieves, President and CEO of HITN.

According to the 2020 Alzheimer’s Association Facts and Figures report, older African Americans are about twice as likely to have Alzheimer’s or other dementias as older whites. Some studies indicate Latinos are about one and one-half times more likely to have Alzheimer’s or other dementias. African Americans and Latinos are more likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the later stages of the disease, when individuals are more cognitively and physically impaired and therefore, are in need of more medical care. Worldwide over 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease making it the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and the only disease among the top 10 causes of death that cannot be cured, prevented or even slowed.

The Alzheimer’s Association remains available and accessible during this difficult time. For more information and to access local programs and services, call the nationwide, Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline, 800-272-3900. Receive help in your preferred language from a multi-lingual staff person or an interpreter service which accommodates more than 200 languages.

Virtual Bootcamp

High Schoolers Create a Brighter Future for Themselves by Playing Video Games

By HITN

HITN TV and UBEAT.TV host end-of-school-year virtual bootcamp giving high school students in underrepresented communities access to resources and educational sessions from an impressive roster of top industry experts. Event to be live streamed globally on hitn.org

Brooklyn, NY – Video games are no longer just about aliens and monsters. Modern games range from sports to life simulation to educational games used as learning tools. They have made their way into classrooms and, most recently, with the COVID-19 pandemic seen record-breaking numbers in popularity among young people. Understanding the immense impact the esports movement is having among the younger demographics and the need for more accurate representation in both race and gender in this space, HITN-TV and UBEAT.TV have joined forces to bring a virtual Super Smash Bros competitive Bootcamp to high school students in Chicago’s most diverse communities.

Hosted over video conference, this immersive 2-day esports Bootcamp will use a combination of structured mock tournaments and sessions led by a diverse roster of top industry experts to give students the chance to refine their skills with hands-on experience as well as receive guidance, educational tips and valuable insights on what it takes to become a professional esports gamer.

Created with the objective of promoting inclusivity and giving female players and youth of color the tools to excel in competitive esports environments, this virtual event will feature the unique perspectives of leading female and minority voices in the space. Recent studies have shown a growing interest from the Latino market in both purchase and expansion of video game systems, a growth that the industry has begun to notice.

According to Simmons, Latinos are 32 percent more likely than non-Latinos to consider video games their main source of entertainment. In addition, Latinos are 54 percent more likely to buy a video game the day it’s released. Consequently, an emerging generation of millennial women of color are carving out a space for themselves in the world of esports. These Bootcamp events are providing gamers opportunities to build a network of support organizations that are also aimed at facilitating, encouraging, and training aspiring female gamers of color to reach new heights in the industry.

The Bootcamp will be hosted by TV host and gaming expert Adesina Sanchez, Danny Pena of Gamertag Radio, and Erin Simon of Cheddar Esports. Special educational sessions will be offered by recognized industry professionals including Alex Mendez, professional esports commentator of “The Titan Games”; Hector Sanchez, Head of Epic Games Publishing; esports host and reporter MalikForté, AidaMarquetti, Chief of Staff at 368 NYC; Claudia Rodriguez, League & Tournament Organizer for ASTROgaming; and Zane Bhansali, segment producer at Cheddar Esports and expert in Super Smash Bros.

Hector Sanchez comments on the opportunities that gaming has provided. “Growing up as a Puerto Rican in Humboldt Park, I would never have dreamed that gaming would be the vehicle that gave me an opportunity to see the world. I look forward to sharing a bit of that journey to hopefully inspire our most important natural resource, our youth.”

The six high schools participating in the Bootcamp include: Roberto Clemente Community Academy, Aspira, Inc of Illinois, Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School, Von Steuben Metropolitan Science Center, Steinmetz College Prep and Albert G. Lane High School.

All the participating clubs will have the opportunity to put the skills they learned in the Bootcamp to the test in a final competition. Esports clubs of up to 20 students will represent each school.

The winning club will receive a complimentary dinner for their team.
