Following the success of the Hola Mexico Film Festival (HMFF) in the United States in 2009, the renowned international festival is back for the second year on US soil commencing in April 2010.
The Hola Mexico Film Festival is the largest tribute to Mexican film in the world and will again showcase the creativity, ingenuity and charm of Mexican cinema in six of the nation’s most influential cities: Miami, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
By screening the very best of Mexican cinema, the HMFF will take you on a journey through Mexico’s past, present and future. The festival reveals hidden gems in the Mexican film industry, showcasing the talent of highly coveted directors, producers and actors that work in Mexico.
Each film reflects the maturity and complexity of authentic Mexican culture, bringing forth unique story lines and characters that the audience will never forget. Mexican ex-patriot and Festival Director Samuel Douek invites viewers to immerse themselves in a culture different than their own, without leaving their seats.
The international festival will screen contemporary films like the 2009 LA Film Festival award winner, Los Que Se Quedan (Those Who Remain) alongside classic films like Sexo, Pudor Y Lagrimas (Sex, Shame and Tears), paying tribute to Mexico’s biggest hits. General admission tickets range from $8.00 – $14.00 and VIP tickets are available for $40.00.
