FROM the producers of the Banff Film Festival tour comes a collection of canine-inspired short films about dogs and their people. Following its sell-out success internationally, the Top Dog Film Festival is coming to the UK for the first time featuring dogs from all walks of life on the big screen.

A tour spokesman said: “Meet four-legged heroes, unbreakable bonds and canine companions that enrich the lives of all those they encounter.

“This carefully curated programme of canine-themed films is comprised of the most inspirational and entertaining stories about dogs and their human companions, from independent films makers around the globe.”

There will be a screening at Lighthouse Poole on Thursday, October 3 at 7.30pm. For more details, see
