12th edition of Hola Mexico Film Festival to be postponed to September 2020.
Hola Mexico Film Festival proudly presents the Hola Mexico Virtual Theater online film series starting May 21. The festival, which has been postponed until September 2020, wants to help give viewers a chance to see some of the best films that have come out of Mexico in recent years and serve as a reminder of how much Mexican cinema has grown in the past two decades. The films have been specially curated for this online theater event experience.
Due to the COVID-19 health crisis, organizers of the Hola Mexico Film Festival will practice social distancing by offering this virtual theater experience before the 12th edition of Hola Mexico Film Festival presented in the fall. Viewers will have the opportunity to watch the best in recent Mexican cinema while staying safe at home.

Mundial de Fútbol, tiempo santo donde todo vale. El mundo entra en un vértigo paralizante. Un policía, un rehén, una familia, venganza… Tres formas de luchar para sobrevivir. Aplaudida y ovacionada en el festival de Cannes, una película sobrecogedora que te agarrara desde su principio y no te soltará.
Soccer World Cup, Sacred times were everything is goes. The entire world on a paralyzing vertex. A cop, a hostage, a family, vengeance… Three ways to fight, in order to survive. Applauded and heralded at the Cannes Film Festival, a movie that will keep you and hold you from its first minute, and will not let go.
*More films to be announced soon! With weekly screenings from Thursdays to Sundays.
Each one of the curated films will play for only twenty-four hours, and will include a pre-recorded Q&A session.
The price of “tickets,” aka the cost to screen each film, is only $4.99 and the proceeds of each “ticket” will be shared with the filmmaker. Support the festival, support the filmmaker!
“We’re talking about some of the best films to have come out of Mexico yet were never released in the United States, or if they did screen in the U.S., it was for a limited time, and they are certainly not currently available to view anywhere else,” says Samuel Douek, Founder & Director of the Hola Mexico Film Festival.
PLEASE NOTE: The traditional Hola Mexico Film Festival 2020 has not been cancelled, and the festival’s organizers hope to help keep viewers safe at home during this time of required social distancing. We’ll hopefully see everyone in September. In the meantime, please enjoy the Hola Mexico Virtual Theater!
