WHERE YOU LIVE
Since Rooftop Films earliest days, we have called for “films that show us where you live and how you live,” films that allow intimate looks into the lives of people and populations around the world. Because at Rooftop, we don’t screen in theaters–we screen in communities, and we attempt to make every event a unique connection between filmmakers and audiences, between venues and neighborhoods. We seek out new locations to host events, and bring together area-residents and non-natives for a shared, memorable experience. Tonight, we bring you a program of films that have that touch of local flavor, that bite of distinct hardships, and the comforting joy of community history.
