  1. Hello,

    My name is Nina and I work with Rooftop Films (www.rooftopfilms.com), a summer film series dedicated to showing new, independent films in unique outdoor locations, and I thought your organization or your readers might be interested in one of our upcoming programs.  On Friday July 27 we will be having a screening of fantastic short ‘toons from Animation Block Party (www.animationblock.com) on the lawn of Automotive High School in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  NYC based Animation Block Party is dedicated to exhibiting the world’s best independent, professional and student animation. The show begins at 9, but the doors open at 8 with live music by Demander beginning at 8:30.  For more information about the show, please visit: http://www.rooftopfilms.com/show_07-animationblock.html

    We would really appreciate it if you would spread the word about this show, either via email, word of mouth or posting it online. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me an email. Thank you so much for your time!
