Dog lovers who have patiently endured the popular wave of viral cat videos will want to circle July 20 on their calendars. Proving that every dog must have its day, Target Field Station will be hosting the Candid Canines Film Fest. Like the events celebrating their feline counterparts, this screening offers 40 minutes of films documenting the wonderfully inscrutable nature of dogs. Held as part of the Minneapolis Aquatennial, the Candid Canines Film Fest offers multiple screenings over a leisurely five-hour period, and welcomes attendees to settle in with their own chairs and blankets. It’s only right that the event would include dogs, so visitors are encouraged to bring their four-legged fur balls to the show. As for those who believe their Fido could be a potential breakout star, videos can now be submitted for consideration via the event’s website, candidcaninesfilmfest.com. Target Field Station will also host a variety of vendors for guests to check out between screenings. Proceeds from the event will be directed to Can Do Canines, an organization dedicated to matching assistance dogs to those coping with a range of disabilities.
