Kittehs come to Oakland with the Internet Cat Video Festival


Cats and the Internet go together like, well, cats and the Internet. But why should cat videos be limited to the Internet? Why not present them at, say, a film festival? Last July, we reported on a cat video film festival in Minneapolis, but come May, residents of Oakland will have a chance to watch kitteh flicks on the big screen.

The Oakland Internet Cat Video Festival takes place May 11, 2013 in Downtown Oakland to benefit for the East Bay SPCA. This eight-hour catstravaganza will run from 2PM until 10PM, and it's not just about cat videos. No; this is a full-scale cat fair, featuring pet adoptions, cat adoptions, food trucks, various cat-themed activities (including—yes—a "cat walk"), and more.

Once the Sun sets, the cat videos begin, with kitteh clips displayed on the Great Wall of Oakland, a 100-foot-by-100-foot projection installation on the side of a building. So if you love cats or cat videos and live in the Bay Area, this might be an event worth checking out.

Head on over to the Internet Cat Video Festival website to learn more about the event itself, and to find out how you can help this event.
