Rooftop Films Begins 2008 Summer Season


We're about a week behind with this news, but Rooftop Films -- the non-profit outdoor film festival that has been showing films on rooftops, in parks, and along waterways in New York since 1997 -- has returned for the 2008 summer season.

The summer screening series typically features films (duh), panel discussions, Q&A sessions, music, and free open bar parties. But there's just too much to list here, so visit the Rooftop Films website for more info, or click here for the full summer schedule.

The New Roots Project interviewed Rooftop Films' founder and artistic director Mark Rosenberg (on a rooftop, no less). Rosenberg talks about why he decided to screen on roofs, how the settings the films are screened in helps the experience, why he prefers short films, and more about what Rooftop Films does for the independent film community:
