Sundance NEXT FEST

Sundance NEXT FEST
Sundance NEXT FEST is a weekend-long summer festival marking its fifth appearance in LA celebrating film, music, and the renegade spirit of independent artists. This year, NEXT FEST will present the Los Angeles premieres of seven films direct from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, paired with three energizing musical performances by Lizzo, Sleigh Bells and Electric Guest.

The festival will kick off on August 10 with NEXT FEST After Dark, presented by Acura, featuring a 25th anniversary screening of Reservoir Dogs on restored 35mm and presentation of the Institute’s Vanguard Leadership Award to Quentin Tarantino. In addition, Sundance alum Dee Rees, writer and director of Pariah, Bessie and Mudbound, will receive the Vanguard Award at NEXT FEST, which celebrates an emerging artist with creative independence.

Sundance NEXT FEST lights up downtown LA August 10-13 at the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel. Tickets ($15-$35) are on sale now at Proceeds benefit Sundance Institute’s year-round programs for independent artists.
