Film Festival Goes To The Dogs!


The Good Dog! International Film Festival is calling for submissions featuring man’s best friend.

Festival Director Anny Slater said Sydney Australia is “crazy mad” for dogs. “On any given Saturday in Sydney there are more dogs in the street than people …we love our dogs!”

Slater, said she wanted to bring people back into Sydney for shopping and tourism and her love of both film and dogs made her conclude that a dog film festival was “the thing to do”. A dog led recovery.
