The New York Dog Film Festival™ is a philanthropic celebration of the many ways that we can appreciate the remarkable bond between dogs and their people, with canine-themed films from around the world to create a shared audience experience that inspires, educates and entertains through documentary, animated and narrative films. With a New York City premiere every fall, the Festival then travels around the country, partnering in each location with an outstanding animal welfare organization that brings adoptable dogs to the theater and receives a portion of the ticket sales.
