Bow Wow Film Festival returns to the City Different

Say woof, woof!

The traveling, one-night-only Bow Wow Film Festival is returning to Santa Fe on Sept. 13 to benefit the Santa Fe Animal Shelter.

Organizers say the dozens of shows around the country last year, including a sold-out show in Santa Fe, were wildly successful.

The event features a “rousing and fun-loving collection of new films” and includes two filmmakers from Santa Fe, Jamie Merideth and Evan Curtis, who will attend the screening, according to a news release.

bright spot“We had such a good time at last year’s Bow Wow Film Festival, and we are so excited to be a part of the festival again this year,” Murad Kirdar of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter said in a statement. “This event raises money for our shelter while entertaining us with all things canine related.”

The 90-minute traveling, all-things-dog film festival collaborates with animal rescues, humane societies and a variety of dog-centric organizations to raise money and awareness for adoptable animals.

All proceeds from ticket sales benefit animal welfare organizations, organizers said.

The Santa Fe BWFF screening is Thursday, Sept. 13, at the CCA, 1050 Old Pecos Trail. A reception will take place at 6 p.m. with drinks, snacks, surprises and giveaways. The films will start at 7 p.m.
