In May 2021, we'll begin celebrating our 25th year of presenting the best independent cinema outdoors in New York City. If selected, you'll participate in one of the most unforgettable, unique, artist-friendly film events in the world!
2021 will mark the 25th anniversary of Rooftop Films’ Summer Series and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate with you! We’ll be hosting a variety of screenings next year — at the drive-ins and hopefully at in-person walk-up events again too — so please consider a Rooftop Films membership for yourself or as a gift for the film lover in your life.
Unlike festivals which give awards for filmmakers’ past works, the Rooftop Filmmakers Fund is an opportunity to help our community of filmmakers make their next movie. Ben Mullinkosson (THE LAST YEAR OF DARKNESS, pictured) and Lucy Walker among this year's recipients!
Annual memberships are the lifeblood of our organization and a great way for you to save money and support independent filmmakers and their work. Benefits include discount tickets, early access to tickets, priority entry, and invitations to exclusive member events, virtual film programming & special screenings all year long. Memberships also make great gifts!
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.
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.
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.
