New Haven Documentary Film Festival Begins

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– The second annual New Haven Documentary Film Festival gets underway Friday.

Both feature and short documentaries will be shown throughout the weekend. Some of the Connecticut filmmakers are high school and college students who won spots to show their films at the festival. Topics covered range from rock n’ roll to Alzheimers to animal abuse.

‘A Dog Named Gucci’ is an incredibly moving account of an abused dog and the man who proved one person can make a difference. It’s the featured film of the festival and it will premiere at 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Admissions to all films is free. For the ‘A Dog Named Gucci’ premiere, the filmmaker is asking people to bring a donation to the Friends of the New Haven Animal Shelter, such as dog clothes, food and leashes.

To check out the festival schedule, which includes more than 12 films being shown from Friday June 5 – Sunday, June 7, visit the New Haven Documentary Film Festival’s website.
