The first ever cat film festival debuted in Minneapolis in August 2012. It might not be Sundance but it might be the most fun film festival to feature our furry friends and their hilarious antics. Cat videos have been an Internet staple, well since there ever was an Internet and a person with a camera, so why not take that show on the road? Kittehs everywhere will unite to show their best displays of grumpy kitty, surprised kitty or just cute kittehs.
The entries have been nothing short of hilarious and creative. Below is the cat video that took home the People’s Choice Award at the festival this past August in Minneapolis.

With the tremendous success and support of this unique film festival the creators decided to add more dates across the country. The next stop is Chicago this coming weekend. On October 19th, the Cat Film Festival will make its debut at the Irish American Heritage Center where thousands of cat enthusiasts will gather.
Chicago Cat Rescue, one of our September Native Community Day’s recipients, is one of this year’s sponsors and they are elated the festival is coming to Chicago. The best part is that proceeds from ticket sales directly benefits both Chicago Cat Rescue and Tree House Humane Society. Helping kittehs while watching kittehs seems like a win win. For those in the Chicago area click here to get your tickets today.
And good news for our Portland residents, the festival is coming your way in June!

So go and see if your favorite cat video has made it to the big screen, maybe this will even brighten grumpy kitty’s day, who is not even impressed with his new “celebri-cat status.
