Both the popular NY Dog Film Festival and brand new NY Cat Film Festival grew out of pet wellness advocate Tracie Hotchner’s desire to expand her Radio Pet Lady Network’s outreach to educate the public about adoption, health issues, and philosophical aspects of the pets in our lives.
Presented at the SVA Theatre in Manhattan on December 9 and 10, these two exciting film festivals offer something for every cat and dog lover through a series of artfully curated films featuring dogs, cats, and the humans who love them. Some of the filmmakers are from New York, and some of the films take place in New York City.
The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals is pleased to be the beneficiary of this year’s festivals. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the Alliance to support our lifesaving programs.
Debuting this year, the NY Cat Film Festival is the first carefully curated collection of films that celebrate our enchantment with cats. Exploring the fascinating felines who share our lives, this festival creates a shared audience experience that inspires, educates, and entertains. The featured films will enhance our appreciation and understanding of how cats share our world, while saluting those who work and volunteer on their behalf. All films are appropriate for everyone in the family.
The two programs are completely different — each a medley of films celebrating the love between cat and their people. To have the full NY Cat Film Festival experience, you’ll want to see both programs.
Tickets are $15.00 per program. A portion of every ticket benefits the NYC Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals. To purchase tickets or to view film details, visit CatFilmFestival.com.
The NY Dog Film Festival debuts each year in New York City and then travels the country. Now in its third year, the NY Dog Film Festival will again bring together local dog aficionados to share a communal experience of enjoying short films that celebrate the remarkable bond between people and dogs. All films are appropriate for everyone in the family.
