Experience this special premiere which benefits the Sundance Institute – a nonprofit with a mission to discover and support independent storytellers who inspire us and give us new perspectives.
Chances are, ‘The Farewell’ will have you running to your family with open arms. On Wednesday, June 26th, put on your best red carpet look and head over to the Ace Hotel in DTLA for the L.A. premiere of ‘The Farewell’, preceded by a cocktail hour and followed by an after party!
Rolling Stone says the movie…
Chucks sentimentality and melodramatics out the window. It’s funny, bittersweet and full of unexpected left turns.
Encapsulating an authentic premiere experience, guests are invited to a cocktail hour before the screening where they will have the chance to mix and mingle with pioneering filmmakers. Enjoy a drink, or two, before entering one of the most remarkable gems in the city — a delicately restored, 1,600-seat movie palace from the 1920s! And, of course, stay after the film for a true Sundance-style after-party.
Join director and Sundance Institute Vanguard Award honoree, Lulu Wang, for an evening filled with joy, heartache, cocktails and trailblazing discussions! Treat yourself to the director’s package which includes a boatload of perks like reserved seating, complimentary valet and access to the filmmaker reception, or save some cash with a ticket to the screening and after party! Your ticket purchase to this event supports the nonprofit Sundance Institute and our mission to discover and support independent artists from around the world.

The Farewell is a tear-jerking story “based on an actual lie” from the real life of writer and director Lulu Wang. Chinese-born/U.S. raised Billi has a hard time coming to terms with her family’s decision to not relay the news her grandmother only having a few more weeks to live, to ‘Nai Nai; herself. Whether you’re left crying tears of laughter or of despair, the critically acclaimed Sundance film is the perfect depiction of how family can unite and strengthen us – though the journey may not always be a painless one.
