Announcing Date and Honorees for Our 2018 Gala

Join us on 2/15 for a boisterous, celebratory, Rooftop-style party that brings together the brightest leaders and lovers of the film community. This year we will be honoring two of the most gifted and fearless filmmakers working in film today: Yance Ford, whose hauntingly intimate documentary Strong Island brought a fresh perspective to conversations about race and violence; and Sean Baker, who has been redefining realism in cinema for years with brilliant films like Starlet, Tangerine, and this year’s breakout, The Florida Project.

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.
