Hola everyone, 

As you can imagine, we’re watching all the events unfold with a diligent eye. We’re determined to organize the best experience possible for our 12th edition of the Hola Mexico Film Festival presented by DishLATINO and Cinelatino, in Los Angeles, CA. 
We are closely following the latest research and information related to COVID-19. At this point we are hopeful we’ll be able to move forward with our original plan to host the festival from May 29 – June 7, 2020. However, the health of our community is our number one priority, so we will continue to monitor the latest developments and will act in accordance to the guidance by the CDC and the World Health Organization. If, for the safety of the community, we have to postpone the dates, we will do so to ensure our festival is a safe environment for everyone, and we will communicate the decision as soon as possible.
We want you to know we already have a killer line up of films, an amazing poster and all of our sponsors are behind us to make the festival a major success, no matter when it happens. We’re hopeful that the situation will be under control soon. And when it is, we’ll be there to welcome you to the cinema. We appreciate your continued support.
