The event -- headquartered at the Theatre at Ace Hotel -- offers feature and short film screenings, some paired with live music performances. The extension of the Next section at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City is being offered for the second year in a row in Los Angeles following last year's Next Weekend event.
Titles that have premiered in the Next section at Sundance, launched in 2010, include "Bellflower," "Blue Caprice," "Compliance," "Sleepwalk With Me" and 'South of My Voice."
"Independent artists working in film and music have a profound impact on our culture, but there are few opportunities to enjoy them side by side," Robert Redford, Sundance Institute president, said. "Next Fest will break down those barriers and explore what these artists and audiences have in common -- an appreciation for exceptional creative vision."
