The festival is suitable for dog lovers of all ages and is comprised of two separate programs of entirely different canine-themed films. Each screening includes documentary, animated and live-action shorts that illuminate the human/canine bond, submitted by dog-loving filmmakers from around the world. Each screening is approximately 90 minutes long.
The first-ever nationally touring Dog Film Festival stops at the Mahaiwe on Sunday, August 14, for a family oriented screening at 11am and a different program at 1:30pm. The festival celebrates the remarkable bond between dogs and their people and will benefit Berkshire Humane Society with 50% of net proceeds and a 10,000-bowl donation of natural pet food from festival sponsors.
As the "dog days" of summer draw to a close, dogs of all breeds and sizes can be seen on the big screen at the Mahaiwe at the inaugural "Dog Film Festival" on Sunday at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., a fundraiser for the Berkshire Humane Society.
