Are you a young filmmaker or a student studying film, arts administration or nonprofit management? Are you looking for the kind of real world, industry experience that will help you get a job you actually want when you graduate? Would you like to learn first hand how a nonprofit film festival works, and watch hundreds of great movies?

Then Rooftop Films is looking for you.
