Internet Cat Video Festival
All screenings and both meet and greets are SOLD OUT.
Tickets to the special meet and greet with Lil BUB do not include tickets to the screening.
The Internet Cat Video Festival was the first celebration of online cat videos when it launched at the Walker Art Center in 2012. The festival, a live event gathering fellow feline fanatics to watch a curated collection of cat clips, is now in its fourth season.
To date the festival has been in over 150 cities around the world. The 2014 reel drew 13,000 people to a minor league baseball stadium in St. Paul, Minnesota for its debut in August. It features 45 cat videos spanning 75 minutes including everything from six-second vine videos to short films and everything in between. The reel is produced specifically for the festival and not available online.
All screenings will feature a brief pre-show introduction with Cat Video Festival Curator and the man behind the popular 'Henri, Le Chat Noir' series, Will Braden. He will be joined by IMA curator and Cat Video Festival creator, Scott Stulen. Bloomington's own Lil BUB will make a special on-stage appearance.
PLEASE NOTE: The IMA does not allow pets in the Museum. Please leave furry friends at home, where they will be safe.
