Short films represent some of the most daring, creative, exciting filmmaking around, with emerging artists taking chances to create something dynamic, evocative and memorable. Every year at Rooftop, we receive over 2,500 short film submissions, and screen about 125 short films at the festival. So we know we’ve got some of the best shorts in the world. Here on the blog, we’ll post films from our shows. Click on the tags of the names of the short film programs (i.e. “Dark ‘Toons” or “New York Non-Fiction”) to see multiple films from the same curated program.
