US museum to host first-ever cat video fest
The al fresco Internet Cat Video Film Festival will unspoolâ€”in the space of an hour or so, given how short cat videos can beâ€”on Aug 30 on the grounds of the Walker Art Centre in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“While enjoyed by a broad online audience of millions, cat videos are normally viewed aloneâ€”until now,â€ť wrote organiser 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 here until July 30.â€”AFP
