Join us for an exclusive viewing of the Just for Cats internet video reel featuring 70 minutes of award-winning cat videos from around the world including internet cat sensations Grumpy Cat, Maru, Henri “Le Chat Noir” and Colonel Meow.
August of 2012 saw over 10,000 people descend on the Walker Art Centre’s Open Field venue to celebrate cats and bring online communities together in the real world. The world’s first Internet Cat Video Festival was an unmatched and unforeseen success. This single event sparked international headlines, took over the internet ‘airwaves’ and was even screened at the internationally recognized SXSW (South by South-west) interactive conference and festival in Austin, TX.! The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies saw an opportunity to launch a new festival property that would utilize the Walker reel as the initial focal point for an annual cat festival as part of its Cat Overpopulation Program goal to increase the value of cats.
