Happening right meow: Cat Video Fest at The Broad Theater

Alright, meow.

by Clint Durrett | March 11, 2019

Alright, meow. There’s a purrrfect ball of film reel just waiting to get in front of your eyes to make you feline fine and help some kittehs.

Cat Video Fest 2019. Yes, it’s a thing and it’s pawsitively pawesome for cats.

Just kicking back and watching the videos you would likely share around the office, but in a theater, can actually help cats in need and not just rack up YouTube views.

Right meow at The Broad, the theater is showing a 72-minute film of just cute cat videos. Yep. That’s it.

The Broad Theater said on its website that “a portion of all the ticket sales will be donated to Zeus’ Rescues whose mission is to eradicate pet homelessness and euthanasia within the New Orleans metro area.”

Each year, Cat Video Fest curates a compilation reel of the latest, best cat videos from submissions, music videos and, duh, the Internet. The fest said in a news release that screening events take place all over the world to help cats in need.

The film is rated “Meow,” directed by “Ms. Meow,” and fits in the genre of “Meow Meow,” the theater website said.

Hi. I’m Clint.
I’m the Local Market Manager for Very Local New Orleans. I’ve lived in New Orleans since 2001 and been living my best life in this rad place since that year.
I have 10 years of broadcast journalism and digital media experience. Before Very Local New Orleans, I worked for WDSU-TV – producing, product developing, digital media managing– I’ve done it all. I’ve seen first-hand the trials we’ve suffered in this city and the celebrations we’ve enjoyed. I love New Orleans. It’s home.
I’m going to work my hardest to bring you the content and experiences you care about to live your best life here in one of the best cities on the planet.
I love finding things to do here – concerts, food, drinks, nerding out, etc. And I love sharing those things with others.
Contact me via email. Gimme a shout on social. If you see something you think we should know about, hit me up. If you see something that needs fixing on the site, ditto. I want this website to be yours, too. Not just one I manage, but one we as a community and New Orleanians use to help us live our best lives.
