A weekend celebration of film and music, Sundance NEXT FEST is a new breed of festival experience fueled by the renegade spirit of independent artists.
Six films make their Los Angeles premiere. Each film is paired with a special music performance that embodies a shared artistic sensibility, or a conversation with filmmakers and the luminaries that inspired them. With a kick off screening on Sunday, August 2 at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, presented by Cinespia, NEXT FEST runs August 7-9, at the historic Theatre at the Ace Hotel in downtown LA.
ACE HOTEL DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES
The home base for NEXT FEST is The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles. Originally opened in the 1920s as the United Artists Theatre, the space symbolizes a coming together of independent artists and perfectly embodies the spirit of Sundance NEXT FEST.
