Please check local listings for a feline time at a venue near you. This event has over 80 theatres joining in the fun!

Just when the Internet cannot offer enough of the felines being too cute for viewing at home, the Victoria Film Festival crew operating The Vic Theatre is upping the ante and working in partnership with Cat Video Fest to display them on the big screen this weekend for special screenings. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue to help support cats in need.

This event is not limited either. Please check local listings to the finest of curated cat videos to aww at. Michael-san (of What’s Michael) and Garfield need not be jealous. Instead of the finest celebrity cats, we are getting a curated collection of submitted works and well-known shorts to go meow with.
