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.
The Sundance Film Festival programming staff will select the films and music acts. The kickoff event will be the screening of a cult classic film at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery — similar to last year’s double-bill screening of Chris Smith’s documentary “American Movie” and the film it chronicled, Mark Borchardt’s “Coven.”
Titles that have premiered in the Next section at Sundance, launched in 2010, include “Bellflower,” “Blue Caprice,” “Compliance,” “Sleepwalk With Me” and “Sound of My Voice.”
