“BEASTS” Receives Rooftop Films Filmmakers Fund Grant!

  |   Uncategorized

A great day in Court 13 land! It has come to our attention that the Court’s new project “BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD” has been blessed with the generosity of Rooftop Films and bestowed their Filmmakers Fund Eastern Effects Equipment Grant!

What does this mean? It means that during production we will be given use of one whole grip truck’s worth of equipment (courtesy of Eastern Effects) for free– a load off our back, for sure.

Rooftop Films is a longtime friend of Court 13, with this only being the latest case of their benevolence. Rooftop saw “GLORY AT SEA” through hard times, awarding us a life-saving grant when money was short, and they’ve been kind enough to screen many a Court 13 film on many a New York rooftop–including “EGG,” “I GET WET,” and “GLORY AT SEA.” Check out what they’re up to at

If you live in New York, you have no excuse not to go see a compelling, hard-to-see movie on a starlit rooftop in Brooklyn. Plus, it’s officially Fall now! Outdoor movie weather!
