Top Dog Film Festival 2020
Auckland's mini film festival dedicated to dogs is back for another bark.
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 The Vic Cinema on Friday, 6 November as part of its 2020 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.
