Make your dog a star! Submit a video to Candid Canines Film Fest at Aquatennial

Candid_Canines_4cOne of Aquatennial’s new events this year is the Candid Canines Film Fest! The event will feature videos of dogs—YOUR dogs, submitted by YOU—and compiled into a 40-minute video to be shown at Aquatennial on Thursday, July 20 (4-9 pm, multiple showings) at Target Field Station. Don’t miss out on this fun opportunity to show the funny, silly, super sweet, smart and/or talented ways your dog interacts with you! Submit your videos here by visiting the Candid Canines Film Fest website. Submissions are due by Thursday, June 15, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to take part. This event is produced by the Can Do Canines, a local organization dedicated to connecting people with disabilities to specially-trained dogs. The video above is a sample clip showing the great video your dogs could be part of this year!
