Love has no boundaries, and how better than to show this than the one animal capable of infinite love? Titled Bruno and Juliet, the short film is the result of a collaboration between Imtaz Ali and Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short films, and is directed and written by Khawar Jamsheed.

It is about an unlikely friendship between two unlikely protagonists. I used to observe dogs in my neighbourhood closely and found their friendship very fascinating. So, I picked up my camera and started following the dogs filming them for 22 days.”
