FAQ’s

Why rent from Rooftop Films?

All proceeds go to sustain the Rooftop Films, helping us bring great new films to audiences across NYC and North America.

Why are Rooftop’s rental rates so much lower than standard rental houses?

Rooftop has shows all the time, so we need to own the equipment. But when we aren’t using it we don’t want it to sit idle in storage, so we rent it at reduced rates to make a little money for our organization and to help like-minded artists with their events.

How does it work?

• If you are interested in renting equipment, please call 347-725-3874 or email rentals@rooftopfilms.com
• Payments can be made via credit card, check or cash.
• Rooftop Films offers discounted rates for artists and non-profit arts organizations. Please call if you need to discuss the possibility of additional discounts.
• All prices are subject to change. If you have any questions, please call us and we would be glad to talk about our equipment and policies.
• Equipment can be picked up and dropped off from our offices at 232 3rd Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
• Delivery, pick-up and technical assistance are available in the New York City area for an additional fee. Rates vary.
• Some packages require a cash or credit card deposit which will be refunded immediately upon return of equipment.

What is your cancellation policy?

Should you choose to cancel your rental after paying for it, Rooftop will charge a 15% processing fee and refund the rest. If you cancel a rental less than 24 hours before a rental that has already been reserved, Rooftop will charge a 30% fee and refund the rest.

Please note

A 15% late fee will be charged if the payment is not received within 30 days, with an additional fee of $5 per day after that.
