I’m totally that “crazy lady” that wants to take my dogs with me everywhere. I love eating out at restaurants with them and take them on 99.9% of my vacations.
There are a lot of places they can’t go though. I either don’t do those things or suck it up and go without them.
A couple of months ago I heard about a dog-centric film festival – The Bow Wow Film Festival.
Conceived in 2014, Bow Wow Film Fest has quickly become the premier traveling dog film festival in the US. Depending on the venue, you can even bring your dog to some of the shows.
Whether your furry friend can join you or not, the festival is amazing because it completely revolves around dogs – he movies feature dogs and the film festival benefits dogs.
This traveling film festival is hosted by local rescues, shelters, and organizations that help animals. Although the exact percentage varies, a large portion of the ticket sales go to the host rescue or animal organization.
These movies are right up our (my) alley too. The films in the festival range from outdoor-adventure focused stories, touching stories, funny stories and skits, and stories about our relationship with pets.
The festival features about 90 minutes of lovingly curated, fun filled and delightful dog-centric short films.
I got a sneak-peek at all of the films in the 2015-20106 lineup. The one that especially caught my eye is basically a ski movie with a dog. Umm… more please!
Another is Savor – a film about the inner secret that dogs and cats seem to possess when it comes to enjoying life.
Those films were from a previous festival but the Bow Wow Film Festival folks work hard to create an awesome new lineup every season. You can check out the current schedule and tour dates HERE.
You can watch the trailer for the 2017/2018 season below.
They’ll be adding new shows for the next season so be sure to keep your eyes on that schedule on their Facebook page events schedule.
