Though your thoughts may be filled with Friday and the weekend, be sure to free up your evenings next week for a chance to see Rooftop Alum Don Hertzfeldt’s award winning animated trilogy, in its entirety for the first time!
After months of touring festivals and screens around the country, the 2009 Filmmakers Fund Grantee Ian Cheney’s “The City Dark” has returned for its theatrical premiere at the IFC Center on January 18th.
And no, it does not involve bar hopping in the Village in weird costumes (although it does involve superheroes!).
Our picks for the three films that will get you through this soggy first weekend of fall.
Cold Weather, filmmaker Aaron Katz’s intelligent and exhilarating new indie mystery, was a huge hit when we screened it at the Ace Hotel in January. It’s no mystery why. Go see it Friday at the IFC Center.
Zachary Levy’s funny, gut-wrenching film Strongman (Rooftop Summer Series 2009), about professional strongman Stanless Steel, opens tomorrow at the IFC Center.
24-year-old Rooftop Alum Lena Dunham‘s new film Tiny Furniture has been winning awards from SXSW, praise from the NY Times, and comparisons to Woody Allen. Go see it for yourself.
Bill Plympton is a Rooftop Alum and and Academy Award Nominee. His latest feature, Idiots and Angels is being called “ambitious” and “hilariously demented.” Go see it tonight at the IFC Center.
Marwencol, winner of the South by Southwest Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary, is now playing at the IFC Center in NYC. Don’t miss your chance to see this remarkable film.
Rooftop just got back from touring with Josh Fox’s Gasland . It opens tomorrow at the IFC Center, and if you value your non-flammable drinking water, you’ll go see it.
