The NY Dog Film Festival™ is a philanthropic celebration of the love between dogs and their people, offering dog lovers a shared audience experience of canine-themed films from around the world that inspire, educate and entertain about the human-canine bond. With a New York City premiere every fall, the Festival then travels around the country, supporting local animal welfare groups which bring people and pets together.

Come for one show or stay for both! Pizza and other concessions available for sale during the intermission.
