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.


RTFF is an open-to-all many-times-a-year, anytime-in-a-year event for cinephiles to camp out for a couple days.



Event details




TBD - Tentatively in the last Saturday of February




TBD - If we do not get any alternative venue within the city, we will stick to Sukumar's Office in Alandur





Can, someone get sponsors?





It would be great to get some local filmmakers to show their short films or failed attempts! :) keeping with the spirit of the rooftop film festivals. I know chennai has some really good ones like Sudhish, Dinesh, etc. What do you guys think? - dhempe
