These relationships bring infinite joy and purpose to our lives and thus, are most deserving of our attention, recognition, praise, and honor for the manner in which they enrich our lives.

Canine Film Festival brings together pet lovers and local business owners to raise funds for local animal rescues & shelters in South Florida!

  • We were honored to have Cat Scratch Fever (The Cat Video) named an official selection. We commend the organizers for holding the festival despite a pandemic. We look forward to receiving word on when the festival might be eventually held. Michael Volpe

  • I really wish I was able to attend the festival. The CFF Team was friendly and on top of all the communications. A great festival to go to if you love your animals.

    Loved this fest and the passion of its creators and programmers. I wasn't able to attend so I can't directly speak to the hospitality and networking abilities of the festival. But if it's as good as their communication, then I have faith it's a great all-round event.

    Laly, Lori and Karen worked really hard to put together a fun event that includes great films and fun events for dogs and dog owners. I wish I could be there.

    They kept me posted every step of the way, and when I couldn't attend they let me deliver a message via video to the attendees. BTW their audience was very active. I received several messages from strangers via facebook and twitter praising our entry. *Now, that's a great audience!

    I'll submit again for sure. Great fest, better people, and dogs! What more could you ask for???

    Was very pleased with this festival and their communication was quite impressive . I couldn’t attend since I had previous arrangements which took me away from the country therefore I wouldn’t be able to comment on networking . But I highly recommend this festival and am very pleased and honored to have my film selected and entered in the screening .
