Filmmaker Magazine:“What is the selection process itself like? Where do you look to find most of your discoveries?”

 

Mark Elijah Rosenberg (Founder and Artistic Director, Rooftop Films Summer Series): “When looking at films, we try to find films that are unique, daring, and brilliant, focusing particularly on the personal, and on intimate stories and subjects. We want to find a range of films that will speak to our diverse audience, ranging from hipster kids to older people interested in social justice issues, from avid cinephiles to people in low-income communities who wouldn’t usually go see an independent film. So we want a range of fiction and documentary, comedy and drama, films that provide fresh updates on a classic model, and films that break new ground entirely. But everything we show has an emotional and intellectual core to it that is smart, touching, and engaging.”
