First Annual Cat Video Film Festival Winner: Revealed!

by at . Comments

The Internet is run by cats. This is a scientific fact.

As such, it was really only a matter of time before all the cat videos online were honored in some officially-sanctioned capacity, and the first annual Cat Video Film Festival at Minneapolis' Walker Art Center this week did just that.

More than 10,000 were on hand as Henri 2, Paw de Deux (below) was crowned the winner of the people's choice award, a.k.a. The Golden Kitty!

The tongue-in-cheek, quasi-high brow prize-winning film is in French with English subtitles, dripping with feline ennui, irony and existentialism.

Festival organizer Katie Czarniecki Hill told the Los Angeles Times "It is an experiment," adding, "It'll be interesting to see if people think it's silly, or great, or a waste of time."

"But I like the idea of everyone admitting they like cat videos."

We assert our Fifth Amendment privilege on that one. Check out some of the THG staff's favorite cat videos from our archives after the jump:
