Yep, you heard that right, Sundance NEXT FEST is coming back to Los Angeles!
For those unfamiliar with it, NEXT FEST is an intimate festival that showcases some of the best selections from Sundance Film Festival. But instead of having to fly out to freezing Utah, you can experience them right here in sunny Los Angeles!
The fun doesn’t stop there, though. Much like a great wine and cheese pairing, the films are screened alongside fantastic musical performances that IHEARTCOMIX curates according to the vibe of the films.
This year, NEXT FEST is even bigger and better with an additional day added to the usual three-days of movies, music, and mischief to accommodate a very special opening night party. Kick off NEXT FEST with a special 25th anniversary screening of Reservoir Dogs on 35mm print. Sundance Institute will also be awarding Quentin Tarantino with the Vanguard Leadership Award, honoring his distinguished career in filmmaking and advocacy of independent voices.
Check out the full lineup of the seven films making their L.A. premieres and their accompanying musical acts below.
NEXT FEST takes place August 10-13 at the Theater at the Ace Hotel in downtown L.A. Find more info on the lineup and grab your tickets here!
