The cats are back in town! On August 29th VIS presented for the 3rd time the CAT VIDEO FESTIVAL VIENNA at the Arena Sommerkino. In addition to the five-part film programme with new cat videos and numerous classics this time we can offer a comprehensive supporting programme for the first time - thanks to our new partner Whiskas. Among other things we will have a catwalk for all the cat fans with the chance to win a year's supply of cat food. Admission free and starting at 18:00. The fact that cat videos have become a separate art form in the short film field is today nothing new: "A cat is a work of art on its own" as Henri, le chat noir, noted in one of his famous videos, which was presented by the Walker Art Center to the public in Minneapolis and which since 2013 amuses nearly 2,000 visitors in Vienna. This year cinefelines can look forward to the new highlights of the cat world.
Film programme in five CATegories
The evening will start distinctly: In the HALL OF FAME we have gathered everything which has won at least one Golden Kitty Award, has a private manager or reached more than 40 million hits on YouTube. BEAT THE BEAT will be fast, loud and colorful. As the title suggests, the musical component but also balance, choreography and rhythm play a crucial role - as the Cat Lady Didga will demonstrate in her new video. Cats have a lot of friends, although they would probably rather call them subjects or servants. Nevertheless CATS & FRIENDS is the appropriate title for the third category, because after all, it's about the fun of playing with bears, dogs, birds or even sheep. In the fourth part our fluffy quadrupeds turn into movie heroes are: ON THE SET thy will rise just as Marty McFly did in Back to the Future and land in the kitchen, where giant kittens are on the hunt. Perhaps a miscast by Steven Spielberg? Back to the daily routine, our feline friends fight their natural enemies in CATS CATS CATS: toilet rolls, frisbees, flowers and bananas. Nevertheless, there is still time for cuddles, daring and failed leaps, as well as one or the other song or wiggle. All categories are complemented with well-known cat videos, and finally, the classics which are a must.
Cats on Tour will take place on September 11, 2015 at 22:00 at the Moviemento & City Movie Theatre in Linz. Tickets will be handed out at 20:30, admission is free.
