A Mini Sundance Festival Heading to Los Angeles

Posted: May. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Though it isn't quite a full-blown addition to the Sundance Film Festival lineup, Los Angeles will be getting a mini movie fest when the city gets a few days of parties and films. However, it's almost odd that LA didn't already have a Sundance event considering Los Angeles County is so incredibly well known for its movie industry.

LOS ANGELES — The film festival arms race continues: Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute, having established an offshoot of its signature Utah event in London, now plans to expand into the movie capital.

Sundance said on Monday that it would present four days of screenings, parties and artist programs in Los Angeles from Aug. 8-11. Next Weekend, as this mini-festival has been christened, will focus on independent cinema that is particularly adventurous, the nonprofit organization said.

Film festivals have been on an expansion binge of late — although speculation that Sundance would come to Brooklyn proved unfounded. Last year came the inaugural Sundance London, which features rock concerts and films culled from Mr. Redford’s flagship festival in Park City, Utah. The Tribeca Film Festival has expanded to Doha, Qatar, and aggressively pursued other offshoots.
