Williamstown: Cat and dog film festivals benefit the Humane Society | Community News

Images Cinema will present the NY Cat Film Festival and the NY Dog Film Festival over two consecutive weekends, January 14 and 15 and January 21 and 22. Viewers can support animals in need and at the same time enjoy a program of short films about their favorite four-legged family members.

Each program consists of short films from around the world and 10% of ticket proceeds will be donated to the Berkshire Humane Society. Tracie Hotchner of New York and Bennington, Vt., hosts the festival each year. Each program is suitable for all ages.

The Cat Film Festival kicks off at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, January 14 and 15. Sunday’s screening will be presented as a sensory screening, with the lights dimmed and the sound slightly lower than usual. All Sunday screenings at Images require masks for Safety Sundays.

The Dog Film Festival begins at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, January 21 and 22. The Saturday show is a dog-friendly screening. Well-behaved dogs are welcome with a human counterpart. Admitting a dog is a $5 donation to the Berkshire Humane Society.

Images Cinema is located at 50 Spring St. Individual film descriptions can be found at imagescinema.org.
