Update #1

Be a part of the most interesting movie screenings in the world

Comment

Movies screen indoors all the time. But Rooftop Films is a special occurrence. At each screening of new, independent films, we add live music, a spectacular venue and an after-party with complimentary drinks. If you support our Kickstarter fundraising campaign, we'll also bring the filmmakers to town so you the audience can meet them. 

In addition, we'll be hosting wrestling matches after a documentary about amateur grapplers. We're conducting a youth poetry slam in the Bronx in conjunction with a film about young writers. We're setting up robo-animals at a screening about a sculptor. We're flying in Codependent Lesbian Space Aliens from . . . well, Los Angeles. But they'll be in costume! 

Tickets for Rooftop events are just $10. But if you want to be a part of all that added entertainment, please donate to our Kickstarter fundraising campaign

Because not only do you help make Rooftop Films events better—you get a season pass! For a donation of just $60 (while supplies last) you can attend every amazing Rooftop show all summer long. That's over 45 events, in 15 different locations, in four boroughs, for just $60. 23 feature-length films, 2 World Premieres, 15 US or NY Premieres, and 183 short films from 26 countries, plus live music and after parties — for just $60. Shows every weekend from May 13 until August 20, and you don't have to miss a single one. You can even bring a guest for just $120.  

Want more than just the screenings? Want to get involved on a deeper level? Get a pass for three people, a Rooftop t-shirt and sweatshirt, AND have dinner with Rooftop staff and filmmakers—a value of over $1600—for just $350.

Or do you love Rooftop so much that you want it all to yourself? Get the pass, the shirts, the dinner, and a Private Rooftop Screening Party for you and 50 friends. Donate now!

We'll see you—and the wrestlers, robo-animals and space aliens—on the roof, all summer long.
