Rooftop Films needs to raise $70,000 by October or experience a severe setback in its cinematic programming. In spite of seeing an increase in ticket sales, enjoying a rise in popularity, the Rooftop’s foundation and corporate support has been affected by the global economic crisis, forcing them to scale back their funding.

In addition to its trademark Summer Series, which this season screened 40 nights of films in outdoor venues around the city, Rooftop provides grants to filmmakers, teaches film-making to young people, rents out low-cost equipment to artists and non-profits and also produces independent films.

Tax-deductible donations to Rooftop Films can be made in any amount at  Corporate sponsors could contact for further information.
