The Tibetan Dog (Chinese name Tibetan Mastiff Dorjee), an animated movie co-produced by Chinese and Japanese movie makers and animators, was nominated on the "animation Cannes", Annecy International Animation Film Festival.

The film was also screened as one of the opening clips at the 2011 China-Japan Film Week held in the National Museum of China last month.

Adapted from a best-selling novel, the movie describes the friendship between Tian Jin, a ten-year-old boy and a mastiff he saved in the wild in southwest China's Tibet.

Tian Jin is half Tibetan and half Han, living in the inland areas. His mother died when he was 10 years old.

To look for his father who as a doctor works far in the highland region, Tianjin starts a new life of dangerous yet interesting adventures.

One day, Tian Jin saves a dying golden Tibetan mastiff in the wild. Looking at the dog, Tin Jin finds that he shares something in common with the wondering creature. So he loves the dog Dorje only more.

However, good time doesn't last long. The mastiff is wronged as the murderer in several human and livestock attacking cases.

To escape the dog’s penalties, the boy runs out of home with Dorje to the snow mountains where they come into the true murder...

The film was first screened in China on July 15.
