From 24 October to 8 December, the Hola Mexico Film 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 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. After Lucia and Post Tenebrax Lux are also huge award winners, with After Lucia winning the Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2012 and Tenebrax’s Carlos Reygadas awarded Best Director at Cannes, also in 2012.
