Good Dog! is a film festival screening engaging films that include a dog.

Films entered into 2015 Good Dog! will screen in 2016

All profits are donated to Australian and International dog charities. Since 2012, the festival and its sister event The Easter Dog Parade www.dogparade.com.au have raised $10,000+ for dog charities.

U.S. MovieMaker magazine named Good Dog! in its list of "Top 10" Coolest Film Festivals in the World -Out of the Box category. The magazine said "If it isn’t cool enough that each movie GDIFF screens features a dog, all of the profits are donated to Australian and International dog charities".

Some of the comments of past attendees include:

“The festival was a brilliant idea and Molly and I commend you for the huge effort and imagination that it took to get it realised. We have no doubt it will grow year by year just like Glastonbury, Cannes, Sundance. Thanks a lot.”

“Thank you for hosting such a wonderful event and for taking the initiative to even start it. It was great family night out for us and we can't wait for next year's festival! Thanks again!”

“What a great night! Thank you so much to everyone who organized this event!! Brilliant idea!”

“Really amazing, thank you so much, my husband and friends loved it as well. Great idea and hope you organize this again next year”

“Thanks again & what a great cause as well!”

“Thank you for such a great weekend! ... The dogs were adorable and my friends said they're going to bring more of their four legged friends next year.”

“I wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic festival opening night on Friday! I really enjoyed the ukulele band with the dog themed songs, red carpet for dogs and the program of films on the night that made us laugh and cry at times. As a community development worker your "plus one" message really struck a chord with me....”

“Congratulations again on the International Good Dog Film Festival... I look forward to seeing it grow!”

“We went this evening and it was fab. Thanks to everyone who organises this Film Festival. A great evening out, and dogs get to go too!”
