Boofy's Best for Pets proudly presents the 2nd Annual Furry Burque Film Festival, showcasing short films about our furry friends!  The festival is a benefit for Second Chance Animal Rescue, a New Mexico-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping displaced animals have a second chance at happiness.

Furry Burque Film Festival takes place at 1 pm on Saturday & Sunday, November 16th & 17th, 2019, at the Guild Cinema in Albuquerque, NM. General admission tickets are $10 each day.  Donations of pet food, pet supplies, and funds are welcome and appreciated!

The festival features pet- and animal-themed short films from all over the world.  Genres include documentaries, comedies, dramas, horror, animation, and foreign language.  Check back after November 1 for the list of films selected for this year's festival.

Submissions of pet-related short films are being accepted online via FilmFreeway.com through October 21, 2019.  Amateurs, students, and professionals are all welcome to submit their films and videos, and New Mexico filmmakers in particular are encouraged to participate.  The submission fee is $10 (nonrefundable).  Accepted selections will be notified by October 31, 2019.

Films should have a positive pet- or animal-related theme and may be narrative, documentary, or animated in nature.  Preferred length is between 5 minutes and 20 minutes, with a planned total running time of 70 to 100 minutes for each day of the festival (two days).

Certificates and nominal prizes will be awarded to 1st ($100 Visa gift card), 2nd ($75 Visa gift card), and 3rd ($50 Visa gift card) place films for each day as decided by audience vote.  However, everyone who enters is a winner for supporting animal rescue!  Special thanks to Weruva for sponsoring our prizes.
