Internet Cat Video Festival 

When: Sun., Jan. 19, 6-11 p.m. 2014
Price: $17
Minneapolis’ Walker Center for the Arts is on a mission to make its Internet Cat Video Festival an annual affair. The first iteration in Minneapolis in 2012 drew a crowd of about 10,000, after which the compilation of cat videos was screened in a dozen cities, including Oakland last May. The success prompted the organizers to create a new reel of footage and take the act on tour. They’ll begin the West Coast leg this week, hosting the East Bay festivities at the Uptown Nightclub (1928 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). Carefully edited and curated, the 85 videos capture a range of cat-related hilarity, including a cat dressed in a shark costume riding a Roomba and a mockumentary about a cat film director. Hosted by Will Braden, the man behind Henri le Chat Noir, the French feline philosopher suffering from an “interminable sense of ennui” that took the top honor at the first festival, the evening will include a cat-themed costume contest, stories from workers at local animal shelters, and a special cat celebrity guest.
