New York Dog Film Festival

A collection of short films about our canine companions!

The New York Dog Film Festival is a collection of short films which celebrate the canines who share our lives. The films, from all over the world, have been selected to inspire, educate and entertain.

poster for the New York Dog Film FestivalThese films are not the familiar YouTube videos of Fido or Bowser doing amusing things. They are documentary and fiction films, 2 minutes to 30 minutes in length, each with a story to tell – and at the heart of the story, there will be a pooch (or several!). The program, which runs for about two hours in total, is designed for adult audiences but will also be enjoyable for children 10 & up.
