Bow Wow has 90 minutes of award winning, funny, inspiring and passionate short films; crafted with talent and heart. Watch a puppy on his first ski adventure, a girl, her dog & a Frisbee, and Ask Frank – Advice for Dogs, with his much celebrated ‘Squirrel Interview’ to name a few.
The Bow Wow Film Tour is a Boulder, CO based traveling film festival that celebrates, educates and inspires all things dog, through the art of short film. The Festival collaborates with animal rescues, humane societies, and a variety of dog centric organizations, spanning the country to raise funds and awareness for adoptable animals.
100% of ticket sales benefit animal welfare organizations and for the Portland show, their partner will be The Oregon Humane Society (OHS).
“The Oregon Humane Society is excited to partner with the Bow Wow Film Festival on this fun event which celebrates the dogs in our lives. The event is a benefit for OHS and the proceeds will support our adoption, education, and animal cruelty investigation programs. Visit oregonhumane.org for more information,” Stephanie Kittrell, Community Outreach Coordinator at OHS.
“We are very excited to host Bow Wow to Boulder for The Oregon Humane Society,” said Susan Kelley, The Festival’s Founder and Director. The folks involved in the OHS exemplify the values that inspired us to create this festival. And showcasing the passionate works of our talented filmmakers, surrounded by fun loving, dog-loving people really is a wonderful experience.”
