"Watching silly cat videos is good for you."– The Wall Street Journal. A percentage of the proceeds go to benefit GIVE ME SHELTER Cat Rescue! Each year, CatVideoFest curates a compilation reel of the latest, best cat videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos, and, of course, classic internet powerhouses. Screening events take place all over the world in a host of venues and raise money for cats in need through partnerships with local cat charities, animal welfare organizations, and shelters to best serve cats in the area.
Whether they’re beating up dogs, scaring kids, or hanging from window ledges, cats on the internet make us laugh and unite the world with their antics. This festival hosts screenings at venues around the globe, with a stop at the Rox-ie Theater for a night of joy and nothing but cat videos, raising money for Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue, freeing felines in need from abuse, abandonment and neglect.
