The Old American Can Factory is an historic 130,000 square foot, six-building manufacturing and arts complex at the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, at the edge of Park Slope. It is perhaps our most peaceful and spacious rooftop venue. Built between 1865 and 1901, with a medievalesque courtyard and narrow alleyways, the complex has a quiet, vibrant artistic energy heightened throughout the year by uncommon performances, exhibitions and events presented in and around the buildings. Curated tenants include a wide range of individual visual & performing artists and companies as well as local manufacturing businesses. The Old American Can Factory was developed and is operated by XO Projects Inc., and it is also the year-round home base for the Rooftop Films offices.
