Hornitos Tequila and Viva Cinema, along with El Norte 107.9FM, La Raza 98.5FM and AeroMexico, are proud to announce Houston’s First Mexican Film Festival. On August 16 and 17, 2013, Viva Cinema, Houston’s newest movie theatre, will be featuring award-winning, box office hits directly from Mexico. The mission of the Mexican Film Festival is to showcase the top acting and directing talent from Mexico and celebrate the best films from the country.
The feature film, “Aqui Entre Nos” will open the festival on Friday, August 16 at 7:30 p.m. The red carpet event, which is open to the public, starts at 5:30 p.m. with Carmen Beato, the leading actress from “Aqui Entre Nos”. Houston’s very own Grupo Ligado will also be at the red carpet event as a special guest.
The sponsors of the film festival are also excited to announce that “Nosotros Los Nobles” (We Are the Nobles) will be the closing film for the festival. The film was breaking records in its first three weeks of showings in the theaters and as of August is the #1 film in Mexico. On Saturday, August 17, 2013 at Viva Cinema, “Nosotros Los Nobles” will be the first screening of the film in the United States in advance of its general release later this year. “Nosotros Los Nobles” will be a free screening open to the public and seating is first-come, first-serve.
