CELLULOID HEROES: Gutsy girls and top dogs star in Event Kotara weekend short film fests

Hero doggos and inspirational women will be the focus of two short film screenings at Kotara’s Event Cinemas this weekend.

First cab off the rank is the 2019 Top Dog Film Festival – a carefully curated collection of short, heartwarming films about dogs and their people.

You will get the chance to meet dogs from all walks of life – from Australian working dogs to the husky dogs of Alaska in this two-hour celebration of all things canine.

Created by indy filmmakers from across the globe, these short films are filled with delightfully doggy moments that celebrate that unbreakable bond between doggo and human.

Oh, and there might even be a chance to pick up some poochy prizes!

The Top Dog Film Festival is on at Event Cinemas Kotara for one session only at 2.30pm on Saturday 3 August. Head here for tickets.

If that wasn’t enough, the cinema will follow up with the Gutsy Girls Adventure Tour – another short film screening that showcases more than two hours of inspirational and entertaining pieces celebrating all manner of adventurous women.

The screening will feature the likes of Samantha Gash on her quest to run across India, climber Hazel Findlay, big wave surfer Paige Alms, crew of rad fat tyre snow bikers who know how to dream big, and more!

While this screening shines a spotlight on adventurous women, it’s not just for gutsy girls, but for all of us to celebrate diversity and inclusion and the rad ladies of the adventure world.

The Gutsy Girls Adventure Film tour is on at Event Cinemas Kotara from 7pm on Saturday 3 August. Get your tickets here,
