For the past 19 summers, cinephiles have been gathering atop unconventional buildings — like the Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, the Bushwick Generator or Industry City in Sunset Park — to watch movies, short films and live performances as part of the nonprofit Rooftop Films series.

As the organization heads into its 20th season, it’s asking for help via a Kickstarter campaign to build its membership base and keep the community-building film events going strong.

As Brooklyn becomes a bigger deal in reality, its presence on the silver screen is growing with it.

In just the last three months, three major films premiered that document various moments, both real and imagined, in Brooklyn’s history. In addition to the blockbusters, a host of other borough-themed content was released this year.
