Just when we thought it was all over…

We were starting to think we had seen it all until we were alerted that an Internet Cat Video Film Festival is debuting on August 30th in Minneapolis. We think this is overdue and only appropriate since the Internet was in fact made for the sole purpose of sharing cat videos. The festival organizer and “Cat-lady-in-Residence” Katie Czarniecki Hill has her own “reasons” …

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.

According to Gawker, “Official selections are still up for grabs. You can nominate your cat video of choice over here, but keep in mind that, in doing so, you will be actively precipitating the downfall of modern society. Just a heads up.”
