The Theatre at Ace Hotel

Missed out on Sundance thi year? No problem—Next Fest brings you the, uh, the next best thing, minus the freezing temperatures. The action takes place August 12-14 at DTLA’s Ace Hotel. Catch one (or all) of the six films at the Ace Hotel’s theatre (previously home to Hollywood’s independent 1919 United Artists’ film studio) for a taste of cutting-edge, bizarre and trendy new films. Beyond screenings, weekend highlights include movie and musical guest pairings (look out for Shamir and Big Freedia), comedy pairings and a curated production of shorts, plus special guest talks with Next Fest filmmakers. Buy your tickets in advance, and expect to stay after the movie for exclusive panels.
