Internet cat video festival

Many a cat lover would argue that the Internet and indeed YouTube would be nothing without cat videos…

And it would seem that the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) would agree, with confirmation that they'll be showing a 15-minute highlight reel of cat videos at their annual White Night festival in Melbourne on February 20th.

With the first ever Internet Cat Video Festival held at the Walker Centre in Minneapolis, Minnesota, back in 2012, ACMI is looking to benefit from the phenomena of ‘cats caught on camera’. The Walker Centre Festival drew more than 10,000 people to the event, with many a crazy cat lady among them no doubt. 

From cucumber inspired freak outs to down right rebellious behaviour, cat videos have well and truly taken over the Internet. With more than 2 million cat videos accumulating over 2 billion views, our performing pussycats can't be too far off from their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

For now though they'll have to settle for a cameo appearance at White Night, a cultural festival incorporating everything from food, film, art and even some cool and curious cats.

White Nights takes place in Melbourne CBD and surrounding areas on February 20th, 2016 and cats, it would appear, are more than welcome to attend.
