Get your appetites ready! The Queens Night Market is back for the summer!! The Queens International Night Market is a large, family-friendly open-air night market in Queens, featuring up to 100 independent vendors selling merchandise, art, and food and featuring small-scale cultural performances, all celebrating the rich cultural diversity and heritage of NYC and Queens.

The market is free admission with the opportunity to take full advantage of the $5 price cap on food — only a handful of dishes will be selling at $6.

Performers on the lineup include: DJ Jordan KnoxxTest Tracks, and more.

They’ll also be sharing our space with a visiting carnival with fun rides… plus expecting visits from a few special guests!

Plus, they will have our popular Beer & Wine Garden, so bring your IDs if you’re interested in adult beverages! This year, 20% of total ticket sales from “early preview” sessions are being donated to two organizations: Queens Community House, which aims to provide individuals with the necessary tools to enrich and built healthy, inclusive communities, and WhyHunger, dedicated to ending hunger and poverty by connecting people to nutritious and affordable food.

Due to extremely limited available parking, we encourage all visitors to leave their cars at home and commute, bike, or walk to the Night Market.

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.
