Cat Video Film Festival

If there’s one good thing to come out of the information superhighway its unlimited access to pictures and videos of cute cats.

So it’s only right that this cultural bequest be properly celebrated in a festival of web viral felines. The Internet Cat Video Film Festival is set to take place on 30 August in Minneapolis, in the US.

Announcing the event Katie Czarniecki Hill wrote: “As Walker Open Field’s Cat-lady-in-Residence (just kidding, that’s not a real position…yet), I could not be more excited to literally bring this solo cat video viewing behavior out in the open. “Walker Open Field welcomes cat lovers (and challenges haters – c’mon, you know who you are) to openly release your cat-video-induced giggles and emotions that are otherwise muffled by computer screens and constrained by cubicles.

“Rejoice and be free like my favorite triumphant slow-motion kitten playing in the video below. Let’s transform this singular small screen viewing experience into a shared celebration with the larger-than-life projection of these silly clips out on the Open Field.” Puh. And they say culture is dead.
