Dog Film Festival

It’s a question I get all the time about movies that prominently feature man’s best friend: “Does the dog get killed?” You needn’t worry about such things at the New York Dog Film Festival, which has been touring its program around the country and brings two 70-minute collections of canine-centric shorts to the Magic Lantern this weekend. You’ve got two days to catch all the movies, which are both live-action and animated, range from scripted stories to documentaries and hail from all over the world. Attending isn’t only going to scratch your itch for uplifting dog tales: SpokAnimal will also be receiving a portion of the proceeds. (FYI: Don’t bring your dog to the theater.)

New York Dog Film Festival • Sat-Sun, June 17-18 at noon and 2 pm • $10 • Magic Lantern Theatre • 25 W. Main •
