New York Non-Fiction

For more than two decades, Rooftop Films has presented our annual New York Non-Fiction program, a night of new short documentaries made by and about New Yorkers. Every year, without fail, the screening is one of our biggest and most exhilarating of the season, bringing together uniquely-unforgettable-but-perhaps-previously-overlooked characters and situations.

Stay tuned for our programming announcement: we're (as always) incredibly excited about the line up, but are keeping it our own little secret for a while longer.





Can I bring food and drinks?

No outside alcoholic beverages are allowed. Feel free to bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages!

Do I need to wear a mask?

Masks are encouraged while interacting with staff outdoors.

Where will the screening take place within Green-Wood Cemetery?

Check in will be at the main entrance on 25th Street and 5th Avenue, but the screening location will be about 5-6 minute walk up a relatively steep, paved hill from there. Please contact us if someone in your party will need assistance getting to the location.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Rooftop Films are open to all ages. Identification is required when presenting proof of vaccination, and at events where alcohol will be served.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

About the organizer

Organized by
Rooftop Films

At Rooftop Films we believe film can be so much more than just watching a movie, so we curate unique events that combine great music, quality film, and some of the most beautiful locations that New York has to offer. By thinking beyond the screen, we help to bring communities together and change the way that film, music, art, and ideas interact with the city around us.

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.
