Support Rooftop Films Today!
Now through December 31st you can support Rooftop Films via Kickstarter! Donate or become a member by New Year’s Eve to help us meet our year-end fundraising goal.
At Rooftop Films we believe film, music, art and culture are meant to be shared. There are more ways to consume media than ever before, but the most lasting memories are those that occur communally, in an environment that encourages interaction, discussion, and shared, vibrant and emotionally rich experiences.
More than a film festival, Rooftop Films screenings are innovative, once-in a lifetime film events. We’ve refreshed the old traditions-taking the drive-in and turning it into an urban phenomenon on rooftops; taking the old concept of a film festival and turning it into a vibrant, thrilling event; taking independent film and bringing those works to new audiences that wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to them.
The Impact of Your Support
Just as you rely on Rooftop to bring the best new independent films in the world right to your neighborhood, we rely on your support to maintain the quality and accessibility of our programs. Donations from the public help to:
- Bring ground breaking cinema, live music, filmmaker Q&As and other enhancements to bigger and more diverse crowds all across the five boroughs of New York City.
- Expand our screenings in culturally underserved communities throughout the five boroughs.
- Continue to increase our support for independent filmmakers to help them produce more groundbreaking new films.
- Your donation – whether it’s $10 or $10,000 – is crucial to our effort to bring the best films in the world to rooftops and scenic spots of New York.
