The Sundance Institute will be a hosting an all-new summer film festival, Next Weekend, running August 8-11 in Los Angeles. The fest is an extension of the Sundance Film Festival's NEXT section, which is designed to showcase "stylistically adventurous" films by up-and-coming directors.
Next Weekend will present four days of screenings, parties and artists programs at LA's Sundance Sunset Cinema in West Hollywood, and other venues around the city including the Aero Theatre, Cinefamily, MOCA, the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and the Billy Wilder Theater at the Hammer Museum. The lineup includes films from previous NEXT sections, as well as brand-new films and films that have premiered elsewhere.
