Eat your heart out, Sundance: Welcome to the hilarious Internet Cat Video Film Festival


Small fluffy kitten + tinsel on a stick = just the cutest game ever

If Cannes and Sundance are a little too highbrow for your tastes a new film festival launching in Minneapolis could be just the ticket.
The Internet Cat Video Film Festival is being planned for August 30 on Walker Open Field.
While nominations are still open take inspiration from some of the contenders below that show cats in their element, showing off the finer side of being feline. This rather unique (and slightly bizarre) celebration of feline frolics is the first time a festival has been dedicated to kitties.

So THAT'S why cats don't go bowling: Let's just say it didn't end well for this kitty

Organisers have clearly cottoned on to the cute cat craze sweeping the internet, with some clips being viewed by millions.
Sensational videos of cats grooming, playing and generally just being too adorable for words have tugged at the nation’s heart strings.

Most recently Bub, a 'dwarf' cat with stubby legs and bulging eyes, became a major online hit.
She shot to fame after her owner dedicated a YouTube channel and Facebook page to her and it is not difficult to see why.
Born with several genetic mutations, Bub will remain looking like a kitten for the rest of her life.
And footage of her playing, running, even just purring, have had major success on the video-sharing website.
