ROOFTOP FILMS IS ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2005 SUMMER SERIES



ROOFTOP FILMS, ONE OF THE MOST PROMINENT FILM FESTIVALS IN NEW YORK, IS ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR THE 2005 ROOFTOP FILMS SUMMER SERIES. ROOFTOP FILMS SHOWS NEW SHORT AND FEATURE LENGTH FILMS OUTDOORS ALL SUMMMER LONG. SUBMIT YOUR FILMS NOW!

SUBMISSIONS ARE ACCEPTED YEAR ROUND BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR FILM TO RECEIVE EQUAL CONSIDERATION FOR THE 2005 SUMMER SERIES YOUR SHORT FILM SUBMISSIONS SHOULD BE POSTMARKED ON OR BEFORE MARCH 1st, 2005 AND YOUR FEATURE FILMS AND CURATED PROGRAMS SHOULD BE POSTMARKED ON OR BEFORE FEBRUARY 1st, 2005.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Submit your movies! We are currently accepting films for the 9th annual Rooftop Films Summer Series. The 2005 Summer Series consists of 16 shows, one every Friday night all summer long from June 10th through September 9th plus a special show on Monday, the 4th of July. All shows take place outdoors in New York City—either in parks, along piers, on boats traveling around Manhattan, in historical locations or best of all, on rooftops overlooking the city. In 2004 we showed over 140 films to more than 4,000 people and in 2005 we will be showing our 1,000th film since we started showing shorts in 1997. More people see short films at Rooftop than at the next three largest short film festival programs in New York combined. If you are interested in having your film shown in front of large crowds in some of the most spectacular urban open air venues for cinema in the world, submit your films now.

Mail VHS tapes, Mini DV cassettes or DVDs to:





Rooftop Films


PMB 401


285 Fifth Avenue


Brooklyn, NY 11215

Please write your name, address, email and phone number directly on the tape or DVD.

Rooftop Films is committed to providing a venue, an audience and a community for the wide array of short films and feature length documentaries that are under-served by conventional commercial distributors, industry-run festivals, art galleries and repertory theater retrospectives. We show comedies, dramas, experimental shorts, animation, music videos, short and feature documentaries, political exposes, home movies and found footage. We want motion pictures that tell us about where you live and how you live, and we offer our filmmakers an audience in some of the most unique and inspiring open-air theaters to be found anywhere. We seek independent movies with original ideas, regardless of production values, and we screen the work of experienced professionals, long-time amateurs and first-time filmmakers alike. We also strongly encourage submissions by women and people of color. We show films of all genres, formats, and lengths, as long as they're daring, creative and unique—so submit your work now.

Rooftop Films also encourages curators to send entire programs of films. In the past, other festivals, venues and programmers from around the world have hosted nights of their movies as part of the Summer Series. If you have a program of films which demonstrates the work being done in your community—be it regionally-based, ethnically-based, aesthetically-based or thematically-based—send it in. We want to work with other groups who want to show off their unique cinematic visions. If you work for or know of organizations who are putting together programs that you feel Rooftop should be sharing with the world, please get in touch with us. We want you to share with us all that the independent film community has to offer so that we can bring all the very best new films to our audiences year round.

There is a recommended submission fee of .00 per filmmaker or curator, so you can submit as many films as you like without paying additional submission fees. The fee can be made in cash or as a check or money order payable to Rooftop Films, or you can pay online via PayPal through a link on our website:

http://rooftopfilms.com/submit.html

There is a submission form available at http://rooftopfilms.com/2005_submission_form.pdf

If you are sending films from outside the USA, we would very much prefer that you pay online via PayPal.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Many of our programs are organized around themes, regions, sexual orientation, race and gender. Past programs have included



• New York Non-Fiction

• Home Movies

• Films from the African Diaspora

• Animation Night

• Women Make Movies

• Rural Route

• World Documentaries

• The Un-American Film Festival

• Music-Themed Films

• Youth-Produced Films

• Midnight Movies

• Regional programs from the Midwest, Texas, and the Pacific Northwest.



Of course, we also curate programs that include films that fit none of these categories, so please send us any and all of your films.

If you have any questions regarding submissions, please check out our website, www.rooftopfilms.com, or email Dan Nuxoll, Programming Director, at submit@rooftopflims.com.

This should be a special window on the website, and on the poster or letter should be a PS: help us spread the word! Link us on your website, download a poster, or email us for postcards. Rooftop Films relies heavily on word of mouth to generate submissions. If you want to continue to see the best short films from all walks of life, we need your help in gathering submissions. And it’s easy. You can post our submission info on your website, or print it in your publication. You can download a black and white poster and display it anywhere filmmakers are likely to be: theaters, cafes, video stores, media centers, microcinemas, etc. Or we can send you some of our full color postcards.
