For the action fans a new epic from Hollywood stars Andy Garcia and Eva Longoria, Cristiada (From Greater Glory) examines just what price we are willing to pay for freedom, as it looks in to the true story of the 1920s Cristero War and the people’s revolt that rocked 20th century North America.
Foodies and families will love Canela (cinnamon) as it takes a look in to the dramatic life of cooking and restaurateurs that puts the reality drama of cooking shows to shame.
The Hola Mexico Film Festival combines the fiery passion of the Mexican culture with the beauty of its people to explore all that is Mexico, bringing Mexicans together and everyone else that bit closer to Mexico through the beauty of film.
