NF14_LAWeekly-03Fueled by the renegade spirit of independent artists, Sundance NEXT FEST is a new breed of festival experience celebrating the intersection of music and film. Kicking off with a Cinespia screening of the Sundance classic Napoleon Dynamite at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, NEXT FEST runs through the weekend with the L.A. premieres of six new films at the historic Theatre at the Ace Hotel. Marked by unfettered creativity, each film 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.

KCRW Members enjoy a 24-hour pre-sale on all NEXT FEST tickets. Act now to secure your seats and catch what’s next.

Limit 8 tickets per screening. Seating is first come first served. Each film screens only once over the weekend.  Get Tickets!

    The Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation is a 501c3 organization dedicated to furthering knowledge of and involvement with the many historic theatres in the greater Los Angeles area. We would love to have an involvement with this series at the Ace Hotel, formerly known as the United Artists theatre. We can provide attendees with a perspective on this 1927 gem of a theatre that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Whether it be in the form of roaming docents, a historical table presentation, or even assistance in managing the line coming in the door (which can be a little tricky), please let us know if we can be of help.
