The Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) is pleased to announce that nine Mexican films will be shown at CineClub México in Hong Kong.

The Cantonese media company HK01 will be the local partner, providing the venue for the screenings.

CineClub México was founded more than two years ago by the Consulate General of Mexico in Hong Kong. Since its origin, it screens a Mexican film the last Thursday of every month. The number of assistants to CineClub México has increased and diversified, attracting more local people from Hong Kong who are interested in Mexico’s cinema.
