Mozilla, the non-profit organization behind the Firefox browser, is partnering with Rooftop Films to bring a memorable evening of film and discussion called “Terms of Service”to the roof and courtyard of The Old American Can Factory, in beautiful Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, July 21 at 8PM ET.  “Terms of Service” is free with RSVP on the Rooftop Films website.

The July 21st screening in New York will be the first of four free screenings in different cities featuring short films relating to the internet. Rooftop Films and Mozilla will also bring short film programs to Austin, Toronto, and Berlin in the fall.

“Mozilla’s not-for-profit mission is to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all,” said Michaela Smiley, Senior Brand Strategist at Mozilla. “Film is a powerful way to communicate what’s at stake when the web gets unhealthy, which is why we are incredibly excited to partner with Rooftop Films to bring these stories to New Yorkers and beyond.”

“As the subtitle for Mozilla’s IRL podcast states, online life is real life,” said Dan Nuxoll, artistic director of Rooftop Films. “Too often we speak of the internet as if it is something that exists separate from our lived reality, when in fact it is a network interwoven with nearly every aspect of our daily life. The films that we have chosen for this program explore some of the many unexpected connections made possible by the networked world, and we are excited to be partnering with such an innovative organization as Mozilla to connect these films with bigger audiences in New York and all over the world.”
