Cat Film Festival, Australia
On October 5th 2014, the RSPCA hosted Australia’s first film festival dedicated to cats. There was Grumpy cat, Maru, Henri Le Chat and many other less well known cats. All films were screened in an open-air pop-up cinema on the Glebe Foreshore. Held in conjunction with the Walker Art Centre, Minneapolis, this was the first of its kind in Australia.
The screening of the International Cat Video Festival provided cat lovers with the opportunity to celebrate their furry friends, dressing up in cat-themed attire. There were cat ears, cat whiskers and clothes with cats!
You could visit the Cattoo Purrlour for temporary cat tattoos and cat nails or get your face painted like a cat!
If you fancy seeing your feline in the spotlight, get your camera ready because next year the festival will be showing local Aussie film making talent. If you and your cat are on the creative side contact the Events Team on (02) 9782 4494 or [email protected] for entry details.
