Rooftop Films is a non-profit film festival and production collective based in Brooklyn, New York. Founded in 1997, Rooftop Films is a grassroots group that has grown into one of New York's leading film organizations. Above all, we are a community -- a collective collaboration between filmmakers and festivals, between audience members and artists, between venues and neighborhoods. Our goal is to create a vibrant independent filmmaking community that bridges cultural boundaries.
At Rooftop Films, we bring the underground outdoors.
Our work includes: + Summer Series (festival of new, independent films in various outdoor locations) + Rooftop Filmmakers' Fund (grants for filmmakers) + Rooftop Films Production Collective (collaborations between filmmakers) + Tours / Curating (Rooftop at universities, museums, etc. in cities around the world) + Equipment Rentals (low-cost production and exhibition for artists and non-profits) + Education (collaborations with schools and youth media organizations to teach video)
