Established in 2014, The First (and Probably Last) Annual Feline Film and Video Festival for Humans has all of the elements of the world’s most prestigious film festivals, but with one distinct advantage over its storied predecessors: we show cat videos! Your hosts Mike Keegan and Jay Wertzler squeeze all of the trappings of a tony two-week film festival into a tabby two-hour CAT-tacular! World Purr-mieres? Check! Retrospectives? Check! Howzabout the cutest cat in the world? (Yours, duh.)

Our robust New Directors’ New Films section wants to play your cat video on the big screen (submit here)! Prove once and for all to your friends, neighbors and blank-faced strangers that YOUR feline is the coolest cat around! Don’t cat-nap on this fur-nomonal feast of hairball hi-jinx, hair-larity and some third cat pun.

Plus, don’t miss a very special engagement at New York Super Week in Brooklyn leading up to NY Comic Con, featuring a 1 PM family matinee, and in the evening, a new score to one of the oldest silent cat films performed live by Sleepies, plus celebrity guest judges vote on your cat videos!
