First-Ever Dog Film Festival Coming to NYC this Fall

Coming soon to theaters—the TriBARKa Film Festival. The first-ever Dog Film Festival will take place October 3 in the 765-seat Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City.

The event will kick off with an opening night gala premiere party (for both people and pooches) on October 2 at Ruby and Jack’s Doggy Shack, where attendees can sip cocktails, enjoy snacks, and meet special guests, including pet psychic Annie Germani, trainer Andrea Arden, Dr. Sue Ettinger (the “Pet Cancer Vet”), and more.

A lineup of films has not been announced yet, but submissions were called for narratives, documentaries, and animated features up to 45 minutes in length. To be considered, films needed to have a canine theme. Also, all films are appropriate for children of any age.

Tickets for adults are $25. Students and seniors are $20. Children are $10. To attend the premiere party, purchase a $150 Special Founding Member ticket, which also includes VIP seating at the festival. Tickets are sold here.

Proceeds of the festival will benefit Bideawee, an animal-welfare organization. Our sister site, WOOFipedia, is one of the sponsors.
