It's a fact: the internet would not exist were it not for cute cat pictures and videos.
Accordingly, hordes of cat-crazed human beings are expected to assemble for a forthcoming communal cat-viewing experience in Vancouver.
The 2019 Cat Video Fest will be taking over the Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour Street) on April 20 with five screenings of its 72-minute compilation of the best-ever cat videos.
The videos were selected from endless hours of submissions and sourced animation, music videos, and internet classics (now there's an enviable job).
As the screenings partner with local animal-welfare organizations, 15 percent of box-office sales from the Vancouver screenings will be donated to Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue (VOKRA).
Full details are available at the Vancity Theatre website.
