The cats are back! Last year Plains Art Museum teamed up with the Fargo Theatre for the North Dakota premiere of the famed Internet Cat Video Festival, attracting a sell-out crowd. For the Museum’s 40th Anniversary, we once again bring back this cultural phenomenon. Produced and curated by the Walker Art Center, the wildly popular collection of the year’s best screen stars of the cat video world has become a national and international phenomenon. The festival is a live event, gathering fellow feline fanatics to watch cat clips in a social environment, to experience together the hilarity and fascination of this addictive art form.

The new reel will feature approximately 100 cat videos culled from nominations by the public in the categories of Comedy, Drama, Animated, Musical, Action, Vintage, and Documentary.
