Bow Wow Film Festival

We are proud to present the 5th Annual Bow Wow Film Festival — the most celebrated dog film festival in North America! Join us for this fun and important event to celebrate our beloved canine companions. We are so excited about the movies chosen for the 2020-21 tour — you’ll laugh and cheer and maybe even tear up a bit as we marvel in all the ways these beloved furry creatures touch our lives!

This popular annual event is being offered both online and with limited in-person seating at The Parkway Theater. In-person seating will follow state pandemic guidelines; patrons must be masked and practice social distancing. For those choosing online ticketing, you will receive an exclusive link code one day before the event; this code will be available for online viewing for one week (from May 23 through May 30, 2021).

All proceeds will benefit the marvelous work of Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue of Minnesota.


Bow Wow is a traveling film festival that celebrates, educates and inspires all things doggie (with or without their human) through the art of short film. The Bow Wow Film Fest features some of the year’s’ best pooch-themed short films all wrapped up in one beautiful, fun-loving package! Bow Wow presents an opportunity for animal welfare groups to host an event that generates awareness as well as offers a unique and delightful way to fundraise.
