The internet has always been a haven for entertaining cat videos. Cats sliding down the stairs, getting stuck in small places or even just being absolutely adorable are all click-worthy. Now, with cat owners from around the world stuck at home with their four-legged friends, the enjoyable videos are getting a celebration of their own.
The Quarantine Cat Film Festival, set to be held virtually from Friday, June 19 through Thursday, July 2, will feature a compilation reel of cat videos from over 1,200 submissions from amateur filmmakers around the world. Tickets are $12 and go on sale on June 10.
The best part? About half of the proceeds from tickets will go to an independent movie theater of your choice. The three closest to Northern Virginia include Violet Crown in Charlottesville, Naro Expanded Cinema in Norfolk and Grandin Theatre in Roanoke, but there’s a lengthy list of others to support that may be in your hometown or a place that’s special to you.
To support a local theater and enjoy the cat entertainment, simply choose the theater you would like to support when you purchase your tickets. You’ll receive access to the virtual event once it goes live online, and enjoy the fun, creative and quarantine-inspired videos of cute cats around the world.
