Canada Will Soon Have A Cat Video Festival Across the Country
Cats. You love them, or you have strong feelings of the opposite feeling towards them.
You can’t deny, however, that, in the spur of the moment, felines can get up to some pretty ridiculous things. And many across the globe have doctored footage of them doing just that, for whatever reason.

TFW #CatVideoFest2019 is opening in your city today. Philadelphia, Atlanta, Baltimore, San Diego, St. Louis, (and that isn't even the half of it!) we hope you're all ready for 70 minutes of nonstop cat video paw-someness! There's still time to grab your tickets, so get out there and support a great cause by watching your favorite felines take over the big screen (what could be better??) We can't wait to see all you crazy cat lovers!
Now, an entire video festival is being curated around those same videos, courtesy of the Cat Video Festival.
The CatVidFest is an American organization that boasts 70-minute compilation reels of unique submissions of cats doing almost any and every action, or reaction, available. The festival is available in settings such as theatres, museums, and outdoor festivals, and is family-friendly enough for all to watch and enjoy.
Currently, Canada will see four cities, and their respective theatres, hosting the festival.
Victoria, B.C.(March 15, 16)
Hamilton, Ontario (April 4)
Vancouver, B.C.(April 20)
Winnipeg, Manitoba (May 23)
Putting the obvious entertainment factor aside, CatVidFest also raises awareness and money for cats in need globally. A percentage of all proceeds from each event goes towards local animal shelters or animal welfare non-profit organizations.
Through this initiative, the organization is able to directly fund causes that require the most attention, such as sending money to areas where the feral cat population is affected.
So you can enjoy the laughs, while resting assured that this joyous event is being done for a great cause.
Ticket prices will vary depending on each city and their respective theatres.
Is this the perfect (yes, enunciate with the purr in mind) festival ever made?
