6 O’Clock BS: Kitteh Film Festival

Oh yes. This is happening. The world-famous, dare I say hallowedWalker Art Center will be hosting an outdoor Internet Cat Video Film Festival this August 30th in Minneapolis. From the Walker Blog:

Walker Open Field welcomes cat lovers (and challenges haters – c’mon, you know who you are)* to openly release your cat-video-induced giggles and emotions that are otherwise muffled by computer screens and constrained by cubicles. [...] Let’s transform this singular small screen viewing experience into a shared celebration with the larger-than-life projection of these silly clips out on the Open Field.

What’s your favorite cat video – classic or new? Post the link below so we can share in the kitteh mania. Mine’s below. At almost seven minutes, it’s longer than any kitteh video should have a right to be, but An Engineer’s Guide to Cats is no ordinary cat video.

*They mean Crommunist.

    My favorite internet cat videos are the “Simon’s Cat” series by Simon Tofield. They’re all animated shorts (the longest is under three minutes) and the antics of the cartoon cat are based on the doings of animator Tofield’s four live cats.

    There’s a website at http://www.simonscat.com, a Simon’s Cat channel on YouTube (or you can go to YouTube and search for Simon’s Cat) and there are entries on Wikipedia for both Tofield and Simon’s Cat. In all, a total of 24 cartoons, and, in print form, three books and a comic strip in the Daily Mirror (at http://www.mirror.co.uk/lifestyle/cartoons/simons-cat/).
