Support Rooftop Films

This year, at a time when shared in person cultural experiences were incredibly challenging, Rooftop Films found a way to bring people together safely at our drive-in theaters and we couldn’t have done that without your support. Your donations help keep Rooftop Films strong in these uncertain times. If you’re able, please donate now so that we can continue supporting filmmakers and creating unforgettable experiences for our communities.


Looking for quality audio/visual equipment to use for your own events? Rooftop Films has affordable rates for quality professional digital video projectors, sound systems, screens, as well as inexpensive delivery and technical assistance for events.

Unique Venues

Rooftop Films travels around the city presenting events on rooftops, parks, and other scenic spots--celebrating and exploring film, music, art and the spectacular locales themselves, and giving you the chance to explore hidden corners of the city.

For Filmmakers

Rooftop Films is more than a film festival—we are a film community. When a filmmaker is selected to screen with us, they become part of that community forever. From then on, we'll support that film and filmmaker in every way we can.
