HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

2014 HOLA Awards honoree Lupita Ferrer was profiled in an article in the national newspaper El Especialito, where she spoke of her career, including her role in the feature film Medardo (directed by Nitsy Grau Crespo and written by and starring Julio Ortega, shown at right), which also starred Edna Lee Figueroa, Edison Carrera, Inma Heredia and Juan Villarreal.

The feature film The Hardest Love (written and directed by Henry B. Roa) continues its award-winning journey on the film festival circuit. Its next stop will be in May at the Three Cities Online Film/TV Festival and Conference. The three cities in question are Santo Domingo, Distrito Nacional, Dominican Republic; Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.; and New York, New York, U.S.A. The films will be screened online via computer, mobile, Roku, or Apple TV. The feature film stars Francisco Ramos, Paola Tonini and Jason Torres. For more information, click here, here or here.

Pablo Andrade, shown above left and above right, was featured in a cover story in Venezuelan magazine Estampas, which highlighted his career in New York, which has yielded him several roles on stage and screen and a lion's share of awards (including two HOLA Awards).
