The Sundance Institute is hosting NEXT FEST in Los Angeles, California this August 7-9 at the Ace Hotel. This festival is an expansion for Sundance Next, and continues to create new boundaries for filmmakers to push and bend.

Last year, the festival opened with a Napoleon Dynamite screening at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. In 2015, the event returns to the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

#NEXTFEST

  • A weekend celebration of music and film, Sundance NEXT FEST is a new breed of festival experience fueled by the renegade spirit of independent artists.
  • Five films make their L.A. premieres and each is paired with a special music performance that embodies a shared artistic sensibility, or a conversation with filmmakers and the luminaries that inspired them.
  • Running August 7-9, the fest takes place at the historic Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown L.A.
