With Rooftop Films’ 2015 Summer Series currently underway, Indiewire is excited to release the exclusive trailer for the 19th edition of the screening series. The promotional clip embraces Rooftop Films’ love for New York City by featuring a silhouetted runner racing through the streets to a rooftop screening. Projected in the runner are clips from some of the screening series’ most anticipated titles, including “The Wolfpack,” “Tangerine,” “7 Chinese Brothers,” “Goodnight Mommy” and “Krishna.”
“The trailer at Rooftop Films will play before every screening, and I wanted something that would harness the energy and inventiveness, the diversity and daring of this year’s films and events,” said trailer director Mark Elijah Rosenberg. “I think we captured it. It was an ambitious project, but we had a great team, led by producer Felipe A. Dieppa from Neighborhood Watch Films, shot by Brett Jutkiewicz (who also lensed Rooftop grantee film ‘Men Go To Battle’), with a killer original score from Paul Damian Hogan, and VFX by Tenzin Phuntsog and Edmund Earle of Edgeworx Studios. Big thanks to Rooftop’s partners at Eastern Effects and Switch, as well. And the fact that the trailer ends on the roof at Industry City, one of our primary venues for the festival, means that audiences can come see the spectacular views for themselves all summer long, and be a part of the action, just like in the trailer.”
The event will run through August 22 at various locations throughout the city. Tickets for each screening can be bought online or at the door. They cost $15 (though select screenings are free) and include admission to the film as well as live music and an afterparty.
