Dallas PawFest Showcases Dog and Cat Videos, Portion of Proceeds Will Go to Rescues

A portion of the ticket revenue will go to pet rescue and adoption groups.

The reel has a working time of 80 minutes and contains 125 cat and dog clips carefully curated by Braden. The clips have been edited into montages using intro cards, complete with a soundtrack, and each montage is classified into themes like drama and comedy.

“What I don’t desire is being in a theatre and with the exact identical experience of watching those videos onto your notebook,” Braden tells Dallas Observer. “I put them into categories so that it seems like an adventure where you’re watching these very short videos.

Braden’s no pet movie festival started in Minneapolis in 2012 in the Walker Art Center within an outside occasion. The movies he revealed were curated cat movies, plus submissions from neighborhood cat owners. It had been the Art Center’s hottest occasion for four years.

Now, Braden arranges and hosts events across the world to showcase his kitty movies.

In actuality, it was so hot that the team chose to make it an annual event and include dog video clips, checking it PawFest.

“Once I started putting dog videos into the reel, it was a struggle because dogs movies, we find these amusing, but not in exactly the exact identical manner we find cat movies funny,” Braden tells the Dallas Observer.

A portion of ticket revenue will be funneled to cat and dog rescue and adoption groups like Cat Matchers and Straydogs Inc. and MADE at Texas Assistance Dogs.

“Big, large cities ought to have something similar to this,” Braden tells the outlet. “None of this would work if we weren’t doing so for dogs and cats who require help.”

All of the clips are G-rated, and audiences of all ages are invited to attend. Tickets for your Dallas VideoFest PawFest are $15.
