Only 24 hours left to help us reach our goal! Check out a special end of year message from our Artistic Director Dan Nuxoll and make a donation to Rooftop Films before time runs out:

As we enter into a new year and a period of great change in our city, country and world, Rooftop Films’ programs are more important than ever, and we’ve never been more passionate about, inspired by, and committed to our mission and work. 

Now more than ever we believe it is our job to help our community:

  • To RESIST the urge to curl up in apathy
  • To remind you to REMEMBER the things that matter to you
  • To EMBRACE your desire to see, feel, and experience new things, places, and ideas
  • To PROTECT the institutions and values that you think are vital to your city and your country

As a nonprofit organization your support is vital to our unique work--no other organization does what Rooftop Films does. Make a donation or become a member today, and support Rooftop Films as we continue to create unforgettable events. 

By bringing the best new independent films directly to diverse communities in every borough of New York City, Rooftop creates inspiring environments that truly change the way people feel about the spaces they inhabit and move through, and how they interact with and think of their community, their neighbors, the city, and the global issues that affect us all. 

And never have we needed your support more. We can’t do this alone.

We need YOU—our audience members, supporters, friends and neighbors—to help us continue to bring films and experiences rooted in compassion, learning, togetherness, and exploration to tens of thousands of people.

We simply cannot do all of this without you. Together, we can make sure that our programs continue to thrive, expand and grow. 

Help us continue to be an indispensable source for community building, filmmaker funding, and economic development in New York City.

Help us improve the quality of life throughout the city by creatively activating outdoor public spaces as safe places for all residents to gather, share ideas, and co-create a sense of community.

Help us inspire and empower individuals and neighborhoods by bringing public art directly to communities.

Help us teach, lead and give individuals and communities the tools needed to create their own programs and events, helping them to stimulate their local economies and increase innovation, cultural diversity, and civic engagement.

And, of course, Rooftop Films believes in achieving all of these things while still having as much fun as humanly possible. We bring the most talented emerging filmmakers on earth to New York City to create some of the most innovative, exciting and inspiring film events anywhere in the world.

Your support is vital and will help Rooftop Films… 

Sustain our Rooftop Films Summer Series, which brings independent film and live performances to spectacular venues in all five boroughs; with more than a third of the screenings taking place in the highest-need communities including Staten Island, The Bronx, Coney Island, Downtown Brooklyn, Red Hook, and Sunset Park

Free Screenings Across NYC in 2016

Support independent filmmakers' new projects through our Rooftop Filmmakers Fund grant program. In 2016, Rooftop Films will give away over $30,000 in cash grants, as well as equipment and service grants valued at more than $200,000.

Empower others to create their own events through the Rooftop Community Fund, through which we make all our film/video exhibition equipment, as well as our event production expertise, available to the public through low-cost or free rentals. In 2016 we donated and discounted $175,000 worth of equipment and services to artists, non-profits and community groups.

Community Events in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Louisiana, and Pittsburgh
Community Events in Staten Island, Brooklyn, Louisiana, and Pittsburgh

Launch a new Free Public Film Series and Job Training Program in 2017. In this program we will produce free community events aimed at the most vulnerable, culturally underserved, low-income neighborhoods of our city. The program will include a 4-month apprenticeship with highly experienced program and technical staff that will empower youth from each neighborhood with the technical and outreach skills to produce their own own sustainable community events. Your support will lay the groundwork for us to pilot the project in Brooklyn in 2017 with the intention of later implementing it throughout Brooklyn and in all 5 boroughs of NYC.

Demand is increasing for Rooftop Films community events. Though our audiences have never been bigger, we have seen that each year there is less and less funding available to support such events, especially in the communities that would benefit most. 

Rooftop Films is your community organization. We are so grateful for the support and love of our community and the work that we can only accomplish together.

Risks and challenges

As a non-profit organization we will always face the challenge of relying on the support from our backers to sustain Rooftop Films. This Kickstarter project is not a means to an end; it is a stepping stone for us to grow and expand. And with that growth comes greater responsibility, challenges, and needs. We are a hard-working team of six year round employees and we work tirelessly to provide a unique experience for all who come to our shows. There is still work to be done and we are glad that you are on this journey with us.
