“Watching silly cat videos is good for you.” – The Wall Street Journal

Some do better in isolation than others, it’s true.

The Film House has been seeking out expertise in this matter and are happy to relay that we’ve uncovered some. There’s probably no other living creature (other than goldfish in bowls) better adapted to our new lifestyle than the consummate house-bound life form, the domestic cat.

That’s why we’re suggesting you take 40 minutes to observe the remarkable behaviours of these allergy provoking critters by screening ** CatVideoFest (

(CVF). This isn’t a pedestrian wandering of the YouTube wasteland, these videos are curated!

CatVideoFest gathers the, “latest and best cat videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos, and, of course, classic internet powerhouses.”

In case you missed all the fun of CatVideoFest 2019 last summer, CVF has now packaged the very best for these strange days with its first virtual CVF screening outside of theatres made available to Film House members and patrons by special arrangement. A home screening costs a minimum of $0.99 with three-quarters of the proceeds going to The Film House.

Support your local arthouse cinema and let the CatVideoFest elevate your spirit.
