The Hola Mexico Film Festival is Coming to Los Angeles in May

March 30, 2015 by Brian Champlin

Between the work the of Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (Birdman) and Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity), Mexican filmmakers have been killing it at the last two Academy Award ceremonies.  But who might be the next great director to hail from Mexico?

Well, from May 8-17, the Hola Mexico Film Festival might offer an answer to that very question. The film festival, presented by DishLATINO, will feature over 20 films from Mexican movie makers produced by mix of fresh and established talent.

All films will screen at the REGAL Cinemas in Downtown Los Angeles at LA Live, each with a red carpet before every screening and special sponsor exhibit spaces in the cinema lobby. Special events will include: an opening night fiesta, L.A. Gran Parrillada, and a closing night screening / concert.

If it piques your interest, check out the full lineup of festival films below (divided into five film sections: Hola Niños / Documental / Mexico Ahora / Nocturno / Nuevas Voces). Keep in mind ticket sales go live on April 1. Screening times TBD.
