#LatinaBloggers Spending a #BooFestPBS Halloween with Curious George

Latina Bloggers Connect is part of a very fun campaign with everyone's favorite monkey: Curious George!

Halloween is almost here and George can't wait for the festivities to begin: carving pumpkins, costume contests, and especially the Annual Boo Festival. Forty #LatinaBloggers were selected to be a part of this Connection and share their thoughts on the exciting and first-time-ever Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest movie that debuts on PBS KIDS on October 28th.

#LatinaBloggers Attend Screening for "Instructions Not Included"

Pantelion Films and LBC teamed up to put together a very special and private event for Los Angeles Latina bloggers to screen the bilingual film  Instructions Not Included, starring one of the most recognizable Mexican actors, Eugenio Derbez, and newcomer Loreto Peralta, who we guarantee you will see more of in Hollywood. The event was so special, that the two stars showed up for a special meet and greet with the blogueras. Without giving too much away, the film will make you laugh and cry simultaneously with its heart-felt story line and humorous take on bachelor-turned- dad dose of reality. Although the norm for many of us, the film perfectly integrates what it means to be bi-cultural and bilingual flawlessly into the story line.

The film is a dream come true and a 10 year venture for the actor, director and producer Eugenio Derbez. He spoke with the audience after the film and shared his thoughts about the importance of family and bilingualism. Confirming what we already know, he strongly believes that speaking English and Spanish is both beneficial academically and in the work place. It was also a dream come true for many #LatinaBloggers who have been long time admirers of his work to see Eugenio's vision come to life and share in the moment with him . Loreto Peralta equally stole the show with her performance as Eugenio's sweet, imaginative daughter. She will steal your heart, we promise!

Instructions Not Included opens in select U.S. theaters this Friday, August 30th. You won't want to miss it. To see you more pictures, check us out on Facebook and Instagram.
