DVF requests cat owners send in their celebri-cat videos for consideration. There can be other animals in the video; however, each video should be cat-centric. Winners will receive prizes. The deadline for videos is Aug. 1. Send videos to https://filmfreeway.com/festival/DallasVideoFest.
Bart Weiss, founder and artistic director of Dallas VideoFest is a cat-person himself. His four cats: Bitzer, CC Rocket, Ali and Trouble (aka Bubble), allow Bart and his wife, Susan, and their pit bull, Petey, to live with them.
“Some people claim most of the traffic on the internet is cat videos, which is both amazing and wonderful,” Weiss stated in a press release. “There is something special about viewing our wise four-legged friends that delights and distracts from all the noise around us.”
For the second year, proceeds from CatFest will benefit Operation Kindness. Founded in 1976, Carrollton-based Operation Kindness is the original and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas; its mission is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until each is adopted. Last year alone, Operation Kindness was able to save the lives and find forever homes for 4,566 animals.
