Dog lovers, listen up! A dog festival just for you is hitting our streets this month and it’s going to be pretty woofing awesome.
Top Dog Film Festival is like any other film fest, except one minor detail—it’s all about doggos, their skills (hello, dog-powered sports) and the special bond they share with their owners.
Like any movies worth your precious time, this collection of eight short dog-focussed films will make you laugh, cry and reminisce on your own special times with the one you love, AKA your dog.
And just in case there was any doubt in your mind, this is a festival that is showing movies celebrating dogs, rather than it being an event to bring along your own pup. But we promise, after watching a solid two hours of incredible doggy stories, you’ll have a new appreciation for the furry BFF waiting for you at home.
