Los Angeles Dog Film Festival!
Film Festival Sunday June 5th
A Bring-Your-Own-Dog Celebration! The World’s First Film Festival entirely for, by and about dogs… and their people!
The historic Crest Westwood Theater [1262 Westwood Blvd in Westwood] will be welcoming canine moviegoers (at no extra charge!) along with their dog-loving human companions. The Lange Foundation will have adoptable dogs on hand, looking for their forever homes and a chance to get photos on the Green Carpet, alongside moviegoers and their own dogs!
There are two film programs which consist of completely different groups of narrative, animated and documentary short films from around the world, all illuminating the remarkable bond between people and dogs. The two unique programs run approximately 1 ½ hours each and combine a medley of shorts into one continuous film for a shared experience of joy, amazement and amusement. NOTE: If you want to have the full dog-loving movie-going once-in-a-lifetime experience, you’ll want to come to both programs!
All the films in both programs are family friendly and appropriate for children of any age (although Program #2 has some films with subtitles which can be a challenge for younger children).
Program #1 at 1:30 PM features a more light-hearted selection of commercials and animated, documentary and narrative films. The highlight of the screening is renowned photographer William Wegman’s “The Hardly Boys in Hardly Gold,” a 30-minute full production film that he has re-mastered for the Festival, starring four of his Weimaraners in full costume.
Program #2 at 4:00 PM features delightful and thought-provoking documentary films and more sophisticated narrative films, some of which are foreign language with subtitles.
Tickets are $20 each with 50% of every ticket going to Our Beneficiaries (Downtown Dog Rescue and Lange Foundation)
