The Top Ten Mexican Movies in Hola Mexico 2015

José Alberto Hermosillo

Hola Mexico Film Festival 2015
had a big Fiesta in Los Angeles a few days ago and left us with a great impression - The audience, the press, the sponsors, and the talent were happy about the cinematic celebration. 

All the shows started on time, and most of the directors were present for the Q&As, the red carpets, and the after-parties were great.

The films were surprisingly good, and the LA LIVE Regal was a pleasant venue. 

Hola Mexico, in nine days, showcased 22 quality films from South of the Border with a record attendance of 25,000 moviegoers - Some movies like “Gloria,” “La dictadura perfecta/The Perfect Dictatorship,” and “El Americano” were completely sold out.

Samuel Douek, founder and programmer of Hola, did a fine job creating enough buzz to consider the Mexican cinematic fiesta as one of the best film festivals in Los Angeles.

Hola Mexico will continue to grow with the number of films, fans, events, and sponsors in the future. The Mexican festival will continue enriching itself by subtitling all English films. Before the festival, press screenings could spread the word to audiences and US distributors, busting the opportunity for Mexican films to hit movie theaters in the US sooner.

Many films presented in Hola won prizes at festivals around the world, including “Club Sandwich,” “Las horas contigo,” “Mexico Bárbaro,” and “La dictadura perfect,” among others. 

With mariachi, tequila, concerts, and special events, the 2015 edition of Hola Mexico has been the best.

And the top ten Mexican films in Hola Mexico 2015 were:
