About Rooftop Films:

Rooftop Films’ mission is to engage and inspire diverse communities by showing movies in outdoor locations, supporting the production of new independent films, helping local organizations to produce screenings and events, and renting equipment at low-cost to artists and nonprofits. Rooftop Films is more than a film festival. We are a community. We are a collective collaboration between filmmakers and festivals; between audience members and artists; between venues and neighborhoods. Our goal is to nurture a vibrant independent filmmaking and film-going community not only by exhibiting the work of emerging filmmakers, but also by providing essential support systems for those who otherwise have none.

NANCY

Christina Choe | USA | 87

“Nancy” is a provocative psychological thriller about love, intimacy, and trust – and what happens when lies become truth. Craving connection with others, Nancy creates elaborate identities and hoaxes under pseudonyms on the internet. When she meets a couple whose daughter went missing thirty years ago, fact and fiction begin to blur in Nancy’s mind, and she becomes increasingly convinced these strangers are her real parents. As their bond deepens, reasonable doubts give way to willful belief – and the power of emotion threatens to overcome all rationality. A Samuel Goldwyn Films release. “Nancy” is the 2014 Recipient of the Rooftop Films and Eastern Effects Equipment Grant.

On Wednesday, October 5, NYC will be transforming into Stars Hollow for an entire week.  Living like Lorelai and Rory Gilmore will be easier than ever. All you have to do is visit these coffee shops in New York. What’s this all for? The Netflix November 25 release of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

From Timeout New York:

The staff will be dressed up in full Luke’s Diner regalia from 7 am to noon, and best of all, they’ll be giving out 250 free cups of java to celebrate the highly anticipated Netflix series. There will be about 250 cafés across the country participating, too—check out the full list here.

If you weren’t able to get tickets to the Gilmore Girls festival, this is your chance to be one step closer to getting a giant mug with Lorelai and Rory IRL. It’s making us even more excited for the show’s premiere on Friday, November 25, when we’ll be in a food coma from our Thanksgiving feasts. No, we will not be leaving the couch that day.

Stone Creek Bar and Lounge will be hosting a FREE screening of the first season of the new television show Distance. The show is about a couple in love that just happen to live very, very far from one another.

Phil Kaye, actor, writer and producer of Distance – will be in attendance for a short Q&A about the making of the show.

Enjoy a night of love, laughs, and collective realization that long distance is both terrible and beautiful. Seating is limited, so please only grab a ticket if you are sure you will be able to join!
