Organized by Tracie Hotchner, the New York Dog Film Festival celebrates through film the love between dogs, their people, and the animal welfare groups that bring them together.

This is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Dog) event. Dog tickets are $5, with the exception of service animals.

Stray dogs abroad, adventure dogs in sidecars, dogs winning prizes, dogs in prison, senior dogs, dogs who make you laugh, and dogs at Images. The NY Dog Film Festival is a philanthropic celebration of the love between dogs and their people, offering dog lovers a shared audience experience of canine-themed films from around the world that inspire, educate and entertain about the human-canine bond.
