Cat Shorts

What do art and cats have in common? Henri, le chat noir, has answered this question already: “A cat is a work of art on its own.” Not only cat lovers are inspired by our fluffy friends, filmmakers like David OReilly and musicians like Björk are stimulated as well. We are going to present a selection of short films and music videos with cats in the leading parts. After ten years of YouTube the cat shorts proved to be the most popular shorts. A good reason to give the most popular pop culture phenomena some extra attention. No other kind of home video gets posted as often on Facebook and YouTube as cute kittens doing funny things. And we all know, they deserve nothing less than a leading part because no human can ever break the iron will of a cat. They defy gravity, ignore the rules of decent behavior and make the world their own and special playground. We bring you this special program in co-operation with the Walker Art Center Minneapolis and Vienna Independent Shorts, organizer of the Cat Video Festival Vienna.
