We Don’t Deserve Dogs
2021 Cinema & Festival Screenings

It was always our intention that We Don’t Deserve Dogs be seen on the big screen.
From the 4K Cinemascope cinematography, to the surround sound soundscape,
we imagined the film as an immersive cinematic experience.

When the 2020 pandemic hit, it pretty much erased all of our plans.
Although we were still selected for over a dozen film festivals, nearly all were presented virtually.

And so in 2021 we embarked on an ambitious plan to have the film finally play on the big screen.
We believe it’s essential to support cinemas – especially independent ones –
as they bring audiences back into their premises.
We are teaming up with a number of amazing, often historic cinemas,
so people can experience our film in all its glory.

“Going to the cinema is like returning to the womb;
you sit there still and meditative in the darkness,
waiting for life to appear on the screen.
One should go to the cinema with the innocence of a fetus.”
― Federico Fellini
