CatVideoFest 2021

Returning to the DFT for the first time since its record-breaking sold-out shows in February of 2020 – one of our last presentations before the pandemic – the all-new 2021 edition of CatVideoFest is a compilation of the latest and best cat videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and animations, music videos, and internet powerhouses. 

A joyous communal experience that surprises and charms (and who isn’t ready for that?) this annual favorite is once again available on the big screen. As always, the festival’s distributor contributes a portion of revenues for cats in need, through partnerships with a variety of cat charities, animal welfare organizations and shelters. 

With DFT’s currently reduced seating capacity due to COVID-19 precautions, tickets are expected to go quickly, and will be available only in advance – they will not be available at the door. We urge special caution in bringing children under 12 since they’re not yet eligible for vaccination, though masks are required for all ages at all DFT films this season. Please see details on our Covid-19 Policies page for updated COVID protocol information. (approximately 70 minutes)

“Watching cat videos is good for you.” -The Wall Street Journal, October 4, 2016
