Take Your Dog to the Movies

(SIFF)

Described as “The world’s first film festival for, by and about dogs and their people,” the NY Dog Film Festival seems like a perfect fit for Seattle. The presentation features a series of short films from all over the world that will not only entertain viewers but will also support local animal welfare groups at the same time. Seattle’s own Emeral City Pet Rescue will receive 10% of net proceeds.

The short films presented include Esther – Saving Castaways (a documentary chronicling a prison program for unwanted dogs trained by inmates), Elvis: The Lonenly Hunter of Circle Beach (about a tough little dog and his search for the elusive buried bagel), Dog Power (a documentary following the canine-and-human athletes competing together in international competitions for shared outdoor sports), About a Dog (a story about an antisocial book editor who reluctantly fosters a dog which bring her out of her shell), Ooh la la (a witty animation Inspired by the French Poodle) and several others.

The two hour long NY Dog Film Festival will be held on Saturday, October 12 at the SIFF Cinema Egyptian at 11 a.m. Tickets are $14 for humans and free for pooches! Seniors (65+) and young adults (age 20 and under) save a buck and SIFF members get in for $9. For tickets and more information, visit the SIFF website.
