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.
