Hey, Kitty! U.S. Museum to Host First-ever Cat Video Fest

By AFP News    July 12, 2012 at 02:26PM / (0) comments

WASHINGTON - Nominations are open for the world's first Cannes for cats.

The al fresco Internet Cat Video Film Festival will unspool -- in the space of an hour or so, given how short cat videos can be -- on August 30 on the grounds of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.

"While enjoyed by a broad online audience of millions, cat videos are normally viewed alone. Until now," wrote organizer and "self-proclaimed borderline cat lady" Katie Czarniecki Hill on the Walker's blog pages.

"This activity is free, open to the public and cat-friendly... Cool chicks, dudes and dog-lovers are, of course, also welcome."

Established in 1927, the Walker is regarded as one of the most prestigious modern art museums in the United States, ranked alongside the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim in New York.

Nominations can be submitted until July 30 via http://bit.ly/O1kfDM
