Talented pooches have been barking their way to big screen stardom since the birth of the medium, and Cannes Film Festival even gives out awards for ace pupper performances. Now, New Zealand has a dog-themed cinema showcase.

At the Top Dog Film Festival, doggos and puppers cement their status as humanity's favourite movie stars in a touring program of pooch-centric shorts. For two hours, dogs will leap across screens in a curated selection of heartwarming flicks about humanity's best friend. Over the last two years, the lineup has included films about dog-powered sports, dogs in space, dogs hiking through the desert, senior dogs and more.

The festival hits Auckland's Academy Cinemas on Saturday, 14 September as part of its 2019 run, and rushing after tickets the way your best four-legged friend rushes after a frisbee is recommended. Given how much we all love watching dog videos online, not to mention attending pupper-centric shindigs in general, this one-night-only event is certain to be popular.

The Auckland screening will also welcome dog filmgoers, with seats available for both you and your pooch. Dogs must be well socialised, able to handle a busy indoor event and be on their lead at all times.
