As if you needed another reason to get excited about summer, POV has announced the documentary lineup for their 25th anniversary season on PBS. This year they’ll be showing another excellent selection of films, including a number of Rooftop Alums.
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.
It’s been an exciting few months for our Filmmakers’ Fund Grantees. Join us in doing a little dance for them.
Rooftop has partnered up with The Awesome Fest to bring Philadelphia an entire summer of completely FREE independent cinema. At Piazza at Schmidt’s, filmmakers, talent, and enthusiasts will come together for outdoor screenings of films direct from SXSW, Tribeca, and Sundance. To inspire the growth of Philly’s independent film community, the Awesome Fest now needs your support.
Rooftop is excited to announce that a series of our films will be screened in Philadelphia in partnership with The Awesome Fest, the only place in Philly to get your fill of all the most awesome movie events.
