Sundance NEXT FEST is a summer festival celebrating film, music, and the renegade spirit of independent artists. Films are paired with either a special musical performance that embodies a shared artistic sensibility or a conversation with filmmakers and the luminaries that inspired them.

For our fourth year, we’ve added a new outdoor venue to offer even more opportunity to celebrate the spirit of music and film in LA—grab a drink, mingle, soak up the summer sun, and feel the energy as we celebrate the next wave in American cinema.

Sundance NEXT FEST lights up downtown LA August 12–14 at the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel.
