The Internet Cat Video Film Festival debuts at Walker Arts Center’s Open Field venue in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Thursday, August 30, 2012 from 9 PM to 10 PM. The festival’s organizer Katie Czarniecki Hill promises an evening of “carefully curated series of cat videos”. The event is free, open to the public and cat-friendly. Until July 30, 2012, nominations of your favorite internet cat videos are being taken for consideration by the festival.
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.
For your enjoyment, here’s one of my favorite internet cat videos,: stereo skifcha by Denis Borisovich.
