The 2013 Canis Film Festival is coming up soon! If you’ve not heard of the Canis Film Festival, it’s a very cool film festival that is sponsored by Karen Pryor Clicker Training and is held every two years.
From Karen Pryor’s website:
The Canis Film Festival is designed to showcase innovative, highly–communicative, short videos on animal training. These videos help educate pet owners and professionals who work with animals—dogs, cats, horses, rats, birds, llamas, and more.
Anyone one can enter, and it’s a great way for trainers to show off all of the awesome things that can be trained with clicker training and positive reinforcement. This year, the deadline for submissions is July 30.
Karen Pryor herself, along with other ClickerExpo faculty members, judges the submissions. There are also some pretty cool prizes for winners, including cash prizes and a potential contract for distribution of the video with Karen Pryor Clicker Training. I know in the past as well that the winning entries have been shown at ClickerExpo.
For more details, you can check out this page on Karen Pryor’s site. And, if you want to see some fun clicker training films, check out this page, which features the winners and runners up from the past three festivals.
