Internet Cat Video Film Festival To Be Held In Minneapolis

Posted: Updated:

Move over, Cannes, Minneapolis might just be home to the greatest film festival ever.

On August 30, feline aficionados will have the chance to laugh in unison with others at the first-ever Internet Cat Video Film Festival.

Viral videos of cats doing their thing will be projected on a building wall near the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, KARE 11 reports.

Leading up to the festival, people have the chance to submit their favorite clips through the festival's nomination form. The submission period will close on July 30.

The festival aims to give Internet users a way to share in the awesomeness of kitteh videos in a keyboard-free space, a goal festival organizers described in a blog post:

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.

Calling the event "the internet's wet dream," Incredible Things' Brittany High reacted to the news in a blunt, but accurate fashion: "Dammit why didn't I come up with that?"

Will classics like "Stalking Cat" and "Surprised Kitty" make their way into the final screening schedule?

Well, the folks at I Can Has Cheezburger have their predictions, but they acknowledge it'll be difficult to pick a favorite: "I mean, Maru is arguably the greatest paw-teur of our generation, but I also think Keyboard Cat deserves a trophy on his mantle."

What are some of your absolute favorite cat videos? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
