If you’ve been waiting for someone to combine film festivals and internet cat videos (which, thanks to your EarthLink internet connection, you watch…how often again?), your wait is officially over.
The first Internet Cat Video Film Festival is scheduled for Thursday, August 30th, at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis. Festival organizer (and self-labeled “Cat Lady”) Katie Czarniecki Hill explains her idea:
“While normally viewed alone on a computer screen, our unofficial cat-lady-in-residence invites you to come gather together on the field and LOL in the presence of others as your favorite silly cat videos are projected larger-than-life one after the other. Experience the joy of a surprised kitten or keyboard cat together. Participate in this experiment that tests the social boundaries of the online community with a live, off-line event as we attempt to gather in physical space and real time to enjoy one of the internet’s most popular phenomena.”
Official selections are still up for grabs, and the festival invites participation. Click here to nominate your video of choice…and try not to giggle
How often do we stop and think about what we’re saying? If we’re trying to prove a point or remember a joke I’m sure we pay close attention, but do we notice the every-day phrases coming from our mouths? As this “longest list of oxymorons” shows us, very often we’re not technically making any sense!
