Rooftop Films Presents: Rooftop Shorts

As the Summer Series comes to a close, we celebrate with short films that remind us: when one door closes, another door opens...and aliens are probably going to use that open door to invade the planet and take control of our dogs’ brains. From stories of hazy nights to friendships lost and found, our closing night program looks back on old loves, bittersweet endings and builds to a thunderclap crescendo featuring a pair of storm chasers running down one last thrill. The end is nigh. It might not be apocalyptic, but it will probably be wild and kinda weird. So enjoy it while it lasts.
