The Pursuit of Love
Open Road Rooftop (350 Grand St., Manhattan)
Short romantic films about chasing love, by bicycle and bottle, on the internet and in the air.
We love bringing people together at Rooftop Films, so our annual romantic short film shows are always a delight of spring fever, sly flirtation and outright down n’ dirty sexiness. If you’re attending with your loved one, you can cuddle up and cringe at the complications of commitment (“The Girl With the Yellow Stockings”). And if you’ve spent the long dark winter cooped up, cold and alone, it’s time to let the bird out of the cage (“Love Birds”) to see if you can chase down a mate (“Bike Race”). Don’t be shy—Rooftop encourages mingling at the show and the after-party (where drinks are on the house, if you ‘re a cheap date). But if you don’t get your fix (“Christeene”), there’s always Craigslist (“Missed Connections”). These amorous short films are sure to inspire some lovelorn longing. We’ll be perusing the posts in the morning.
