Short Films for the Shortest Day of the Year





Please consider donating to the Rooftop Films Kickstarter

These types of asks are awkward, we get it. We’re not professional fundraisers, we’re film lovers, just like you. We’ve supported a lot of filmmakers and we depend on your support to make this work happen


Whether giving grants like the ones announced earlier this week or opening and closing our festival with a program of short films, we’ve always supported short films and their makers. Today we’re talking about REALLY short films. Of the over 150 films under 5 minutes, here are some highlights:
