FAQs
ROOFTOP FILMS RENTALSWhy rent from Rooftop Films? All proceeds go to sustain the Rooftop organization, helping us to bring great new films to big audiences, indoors and out, all over North America.

Why are Rooftop's rental rates so much lower than standard rental houses? Rooftop doesn't buy equipment just to rent it like a typical rental house, so we can charge less. We have shows all the time, so we need to own the equipment, but when we aren't using it we don't want it to sit idle in storage. So we rent it at reduced rates to make a little money for our organization and to help like-minded artists with their events. We make a little money, you save a lot of money and more great events can happen!

How does it work?
+ If you are interested in renting equipment, please call 347-725-3874 or email

Rentals * at * rooftopfilms * dot * com

+ Payments can be made via credit card, check or cash.

+ Rooftop Films is committed to helping small arts groups, particularly microcinemas and small film exhibitors. This is why we offer discounted rates for artists and non-profit arts organizations. Unfortunately, our resources are limited so we can not always offer as big a discount as we would like to. Please call if you need to discuss the possibility of additional discounts.

+ All prices are negotiable and subject to change. If you have any questions, please call us and we would be glad to talk about our equipment and policies.

+ Equipment can be picked up and dropped off from our offices at 232 3rd Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

+ Delivery, pick-up and technical assistance are available in the New York City area for an additional fee. Rates vary.

+ Some packages require a cash or credit card deposit which will be refunded immediately upon return of equipment.

How do I reserve the equipment? Once you pay for a rental, Rooftop Films will reserve your equipment for you. Should you choose to cancel your rental after paying for it, Rooftop will charge a 15% processing fee and refund the rest. If you cancel a rental less than 24 hours before a rental that has already been reserved, Rooftop will charge a 30% fee and refund the rest.

+ Please note: A 15% late fee will be charged if the payment is not received within 30 days, with an additional fee of $5 per day after that.
