Now in its 17th year, this alfresco series hosts more than 45 screenings at locations throughout the city. Besides curating smart indie docs, shorts and features, Rooftop’s organizers have a talent for procuring unique venues, such as Socrates Sculpture Park and the roof of Brooklyn Grange. To top it off, performances by buzzy music acts precede the feature. This week, see Swedish doc Belleville Baby on Sat 6 and Bending Steel, about a carnival strongman, appropriately screened at Coney Island on Mon 8.
