8th Hola Mexico Film Festival tours Australia from October to December 2013. From the weird and wonderful to the strange but true, get ready to experience the very best of Mexican cinema and culture as the 8th Annual Hola Mexico Film Festival returns to tour Australia next month. The festival will travel through Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth with 10 feature films, 6 documentaries and a series of special events marking the opening and closing nights in each city.
The event is more than just a film festival, striving to take Australians on a journey to Mexico, with tastes of culture, entertainment and food, while the silver screen gives audiences a glimpse into Mexico’s heart and soul. The 2013 festival will open with the already announced Nosotros Los Nobles (We are the Nobles), the surprise Mexican comedy blockbuster of the year and #1 box office hit in Mexico cinema’s history!
Other highlights include La Vida Breve Y Precoz De Sabina Rivas (The Precocious And Brief Life Of Sabina Rivas), which was nominated for 11 Ariel Awards – Mexico’s equivalent of the Academy Awards. The film is based on the novel La Mara.
After Lucia and Post Tenebrax Lux are also huge award winners, with Lucia winning the Un Certain Regard at Cannes and Tenebrax’s Carlos Reygadas awarded Best Director at the same event in 2012.
