Fueled by the renegade spirit of independent artists, Sundance NEXT FEST is a new breed of festival experience celebrating the intersection of music and film. NEXT FEST kicks off with an outdoor screening of a classic Sundance film with Cinespia at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and continues through the weekend with the Los Angeles premieres of six new films at the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles. Each film marked by unfettered creativity is paired with either a special music performance that embodies a shared artistic sensibility, or a conversation that brings together filmmakers with those who inspired them.
