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.

Support Rooftop Films

As a nonprofit organization your support is vital to our unique work. By bringing films directly to neighborhoods throughout the city, Rooftop Films creates inspiring environments that truly change the way people interact with and think of their community, their neighbors, the city, and the global issues that affect us all. Donate, become a member, a sponsor or a volunteer today!

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.


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.
