Happy New Year from Rooftop Films!

Just a few hours left to make a 2010 tax deductible contribution and receive discounted Rooftop Memberships.

As we reflect on 2010, we’re happy to say it was our best year ever, thanks to the support of filmmakers, audience members, venues, partners, staff, volunteers and friends like you. During our 14th year of underground movies outdoors we presented more than 60 screenings in 15 locations across New York City and beyond. Our shows were attended by more than 25,000 people, making us one of the most well-attended independent film events in the country. But we need your help to continue all of our valuable work.

In order for Rooftop Films to thrive and carry out our mission, we have to raise $30,000 from supporters like you.

For all our success, Rooftop Films is still a small, independently-run organization. Because of our commitment to the audience, tickets are inexpensive, and can’t cover all our costs. Because of our commitment to fostering community, we host numerous public events with no admission charge in under-privileged neighborhoods. Because of our commitment to filmmakers, submission fees are low, and can’t pay for the things that elevate Rooftop from a festival to a family. And many of our outreach programs cost us thousands of dollars to run.

Please make a year-end, tax deductible contribution to help sustain our valuable work.

This year, we’re offering you two ways to support Rooftop Films as a part of your year-end planning: Donation and Membership. If you respect our work and want to see it continue, please make a 100% tax-deductible donation. Whether $1,000 or $100 or $10, your support is crucial to achieving our mission—we could not do it without you. This year, we’re also offering you the chance to become a Rooftop Films Member.

As a Rooftop Member, you get guaranteed admission to all screenings, expedited seating, Rooftop merchandise and more. Membership fees are tax deductible, and, if you buy before December 31, 2010, you can take advantage of our special holiday pricing ($45), saving you up to $455 per membership.

You only have a few hours left to make a year-end, tax deductible donation or membership purchase. Please Support us today.
