The festival will open up with the 10th anniversary screening of “Napoleon Dynamite” and will also include screenings of Sundance Film Festival hits “Life After Beth” and “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter.” Other films showing include Elisabeth Moss’ “Listen Up Phillip,” prison drama “Imperial Dreams,” war film “The Guest” and the Iranian vampire flick “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.” Father John Misty, Warpaint and Tinashe are the musical guests confirmed to play at the festival.

“NEXT FEST is a continuation of our efforts to connect film-loving audiences with the next generation of independent filmmakers. The unique convergence of film and music enhances the experience of each and offers fresh insight into the talent and vision of these outstanding independent artists,” Sundance Film Festival Director John Cooper said.

The festival is an extension of the popular NEXT section at the Sundance Film Festival, which showcases stylistically adventurous and bold films, and builds on the Institute’s NEXT WEEKEND event, hosted in 2013.
