A film festival on four legs, this is a celebration of the love between dogs, their people, and the animal welfare groups that bring them together. We are screening two programs of short films followed by a feature. Each screening runs 75 minutes. A bonus screening of RBG will be presented after the canine films.

2pm – 3:15pm – "Outdoor Adventure With Dogs" shorts (purchase solo tickets here)
4pm – 5:15pm – "Who Rescued Whom? " shorts (purchase solo tickets here)
6pm – 7:15pm – Laurie Anderson's feature film, Heart of a Dog (purchase solo tickets here)
In the short screenings, you'll meet a Yorkie who runs around New York City in a Wonder Woman costume, see a documentary about dogs in correctional facilities, and enjoy an animated film about a cowardly dog who must rescue his human. Multimedia artist Laurie Anderson reflects on her relationship with her beloved terrier, Lolabelle. You can read more about "Outdoor Adventure With Dogs," "Who Rescued Whom?," and Heart of a Dog at

Pass the pupcorn! Bring your pet! Well-mannered, well-dressed dogs who appreciate good films are welcome to attend any of the three dog-related screenings.

Dogs must be spayed/neutered
Owners must show written proof of a rabies vaccination within the past year. Rabies tags are not sufficient documentation; paperwork from your vet is required.
All dogs must be kept on a short leash (no retractable leashes) for the entire event.
We reserve the right to ask owners to remove dogs with behavioral problems, and the right to ask dogs to remove owners who are unable to follow the safety rules. Woof!
