Roof-Top film Fest (RTFF) is a film festival born out of the desire to provide a platform for people to enjoy movies and share their criticism in an open environment. An intense atmosphere will be created for the screening of the films and the discussions that follow. The Roof-Top Film Fest will focus on independent films, short films, cult movies and films that changed the way we looked at cinema. Web 2.0 Design

Films I would like to see


  • A Man Escaped (Sounds like a really interesting film but since it isn't heist or neo-noir, let's put this hold till a session on Escape films)
  • The Ladykillers (1955) - The film that the Coen brothers remade with Tom Hanks. Genre:Heist
  • The Killing (1956) - This is the Stanley Kubrick film that inspired Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. Genre: Heist
  • Ocean's Eleven (1960) - The film that inspired Soderberg to start the Ocean's franchise. Genre: Heist
  • Dog Day Afternoon (1975) - The film that inspired many heist films about hold-ups including the Inside Man. Genre: Heist
  • True Romance (1993) - Tarantino's most autobiographical film directed by Tony Scott. Genre: Neo-noir.
  • The Usual Suspects (1995) - After watching all the Hindi versions ripped off from this, you gotto see the original. Genre: Neo-noir.
  • Mad City (1997) - A worthy tribute to Dog Day Afternoon. Genre: Heist
  • Ek Chalis Ki Last Local (2007) - Finally, an authentic desi Tarantino-meets-Coen Brothers movie. Genre: Neo-noir
