A cinematic celebration of dogs and their companions can be seen in Buxton on September 26.
The Top Dog Film Festival is a collection of canine-inspired short films, all celebrating the unbreakable bond between dogs and humans.
Featuring a carefully curated collection of stories from independent film-makers all around the world, the Top Dog Film Festival’s highlights include Arthur, pictured above. On day four of a gruelling adventure race in Ecuador, Team Peak Performance from Sweden were closing in on the race leaders, when a surprise addition to the team changed their course. The athletes were approached by a, then un-named, stray dog severely injured with a large wound on its back. This chance encounter led to a 10,000km journey for one dog to join a team and find a home.
