CatVideoFest making its way back to Victoria

A curation of favourite cat videos will be featured on the big screen, all to support cats

Victoria’s favourite collection of felines on the big screen is back: The CatVideoFest returns in March, thanks to the Victoria Film Festival.

The two-day festival will screen the best cat videos around, as submitted by enthusiasts and artist, curated from viral hits on the web. The furry favourites will be aired on the big screen at the Vic Theatre on March 13 and 14. On top of sharing some whiskered wonders, proceeds from the screenings go to support Victoria’s Cat’s Cradle Animal Rescue.

“CatVideoFest is fun, and we love to partner with other organizations that support community endeavors. Last year’s CatVideoFest was an enormous hit, so it was an easy decision to bring it back,” says head programmer Kinga Binkowska.“It’s a perfect partnership, working with CatVideoFest and Cat’s Cradle. Everybody wins.”

Ticket purchasers will be privy to 70 minutes of footage, with four screenings available: Friday, March 13 at 5:30 and 7:45 p.m.; and Saturday, March 14 at 3 and 5:30 p.m.

Tickets are available online at victoriafilmfestival.com and for more information on the international event, visit catvideofest.com.
