It may not be Cannes or the Sundance Film Festival, but for the crazy cat lover obsessed with posting and watching cat videos online, Sunday’s Los Angeles Feline Film Festival at Expo Park is for you.
More than 10,000 people are expect to attend the cat-themed event, which will be hosted by internet celebrity cats “Lil Bub” and “Tara the Hero Cat.”
According to organizers, the day will include multiple cat videos projected on an 80-foot screen, cat adoptions, cat exhibitors, food trucks and a beer tent.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their leashed cat with them and also dress up in cat attire. For those brave enough to walk the catwalk, the Crazy Cat Costume Contest will award prizes to the best-dressed felines.
Worried about if your cat may need to take care of business during the nine-hour event? Not to worry. The Feline Film Festival will have plenty of litterboxes in “designated cat relief areas.”
The Feline Film Festival idea began in Minnesota at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis in 2012 and since then, has turned into a multi-stop tour.
Tickets are still available for the Sunday event, which runs from 1-10 p.m. in Exposition Park. Tickets and more information can be found on the Los Angeles Feline Film Festival website. Keep the pooches at home for this event as no dogs will be allowed.
