Since we at Cheezburger make it our personal business to know about entertaining cat events around the globe, we’re excited to tell you about Catdance Film Festival!
This electrifying event takes place on January 19 in Park City, Utah. The festival is hosted by AnnaLynne McCord—known for her parts on Nip/Tuck and the new 90210—and celebrated for her role as a young philanthropist. These cat-centric films are quality, original scripted shorts, featuring the best and brightest in new cat cinema.
Brought to you by the Makers of Fresh Step Litter, five spectacular cat films have been picked (from many!) to be screened at the Film Festival, along with other “official selections” that they’ve commissioned. The films will range from comedies to biographies to animated shorts—a little something for every feline lover out there. This isn’t a festival for amateurs, and the amount of work and skill put into these films is obvious; just take a look at A Cat In Love up above! Talk about inspired.
Catdance Film Festival will not only explore the fuzzy terrain of feline film on January 19, it will also raise money for the ASPCA through the sale of cat-inspired hats created just for the occasion. Host AnnaLynne McCord will unveil this limited-edition knit hat (with pointy ears of course)—design courtesy of knitwear designer Sunghee Bang. The hat will be available at the ASPC online store and 100% of the profits benefit the ASPCA and their mission to prevent cruelty to animals.
The fun doesn’t completely end with the screening! You (whether you attend the festival or not) will help decide which filmmaker receives the $10,000 cash prize. To watch the films and cast your vote just visit Fresh Step January 20 through February 28—you’ll have the chance to win some prizes as well.
Have fun and happy viewing!
