The fourth annual Bow Wow Film Festival stops for the first time at Keystone’s Warren Station on Friday. All of the ticket sales for the Colorado-based dog festival will benefit the Summit County Animal Shelter.
Over 20 live action and animated films will be presented in two 50-minute reels. The audience can expect to see Addie Akemi Kohzu’s “When I Was a Human,” which is about a dog fearing that he has lost the love of his owner; “Working Dogs for Conservation,” a film that explores the relationship of working dogs and their handlers in Tanzania; “Origin of Dogs,” The Atlantic science writer Ed Yong explaining the history of dogs in light of new research; “Shakespeare Shorts,” a dog version of “Two Gentlemen of Verona,” and other films.
Though there are no special presenters for the films, attendees can enjoy food from Pizza on the Run, drink and prizes donated by The North Face, Pug Ryan’s, Lakeside Bowling, Evo3 Workspace and others. There will also be a small silent auction.
Additionally, the shelter will be present and promoting the animals they have for adoption, with one or two dogs possibly making a special appearance alongside Keystone Ski Patrol’s avalanche dogs. However, the festival is not pet friendly.
“This is a great opportunity for people to engage with The Frisco Animal Shelter and learn more about volunteer and adoption opportunities,” wrote Christopher Duncan with the Keystone Neighbourhood Company in an email. “We ask that you leave your furry friends at home for this event as shelter dogs may be on-site.”
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the films start at 7. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Visit WarrenStation.com to purchase.
