Best Rare Sighting of a Local Film Festival: Internet Cat Video Festival

Best Rare Sighting of a Local Film Festival

Let’s face it — Cincinnati has really struggled with film festivals. But in 2016, there was at least one notable success. The Cincinnati Art Museum presented the traveling Internet Cat Video Festival, which offered some 100 videos that were — dare we say it — curated by people who actually feel watching cat videos is a higher calling. (Actually, the super-sophisticated Walker Art Center in Minneapolis organized the event.) With one outdoor and one indoor screening in June, both popular with hipsters and their kids alike, this could become an annual event. Cincinnati Art Museum, 953 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams, 513-721-2787, cincinnatiartmuseum.org.
