Given how prevalent cats are on the internet, we figured it was really
only a matter of time until someone thought it would be a great idea to
launch a film festival for Internet cat videos.
The first Internet Cat Video Film Festival is set to take place August 30th at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis. Organized by Katie Czarniecki Hill, here's what to expect at the event:
While normally viewed alone on a computer screen, our unofficial cat-lady-in-residence invites you to come gather together on the field and LOL in the presence of others as your favorite silly cat videos are projected larger-than-life one after the other. Experience the joy of a surprised kitten or keyboard cat together. Participate in this experiment that tests the social boundaries of the online community with a live, off-line event as we attempt to gather in physical space and real time to enjoy one of the internet's most popular phenomena.
