As the 2009 Summer Series winds down, a severe gap in Rooftop Films’ budget threatens to drastically shrink their future programming. They must raise $70,000 by October to ensure that they can continue without compromise in 2010. Donations from supporters – whether it’s $1,000 or $100 or $10 – is crucial to that effort.
Bringing independent film to the diverse communities of New York City is central to their mission, which is why their 2009 Summer Series has gone ahead as planned despite major budget cuts behind the scenes. In fact, this has been a banner year for Rooftop – more premieres than ever before, groundbreaking partnerships with organizations like International Film Festival Rotterdam and Reel 13, and record audiences. By the end of the season, they will have presented more than 40 nights of incredible films in incredible locations.
