Dog film festival to premiere the summer

If you love films about all things canine and want to get out of the heat this summer, you and your pooch are in for a treat. The Dog Film Festival may be coming to a movie house near you.

Dedicated to the memory of Joan Rivers, the Dog Film Festival will premiere in Los Angeles June 4-5, followed by appearances throughout the summer in movie houses across the United States.  A list of locations is available on the Dog Film Festival website.

Two film programs will be shown. Program 1 features a light-hearted selection of commercials and animated, documentary and narrative films. Program 2 features thought-provoking documentary films and more sophisticated narrative films, including some with English subtitles.
