Our top picks from the Walker Art Center's inaugural Internet Cat Video Festival

Posted by Liv Siddall,

The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis has recently boldly gone where no one – particularly not those who deal primarily in contemporary art – have gone before, by putting on the world’s first Internet Cat Video Festival. It had to happen sooner or later, right? Crowds of over 6,000 people poured into the grounds of the renowned gallery to watch a festival championing the feline stars of the internet. Spanning categories such as comedy, drama, lifetime achievement, art house, and people’s choice (where the audience were allowed to vote) the videos were judged and the winners have been announced. Here’s a few of our favourites from their playlist of nominees which should keep you going for a while. See the all-round winner in Henri, Paw de Deux above.
