At issue is whether cat video lovers used to gorging on the clips in the privacy of their homes will do so in public - an online community of fellow aficionados interacting face to face for the first time. "It is a cultural phenomenon that raises some interesting questions," said Katie Hill, the Walker program associate who first suggested the festival. But Hill, a self-described "art historian and cat lady," was quick to add: "I'm not a behavioral psychologist, I'm not a sociologist. I just think they're funny and cute, and I think a lot of other people do too."

If you somehow missed this--you can still catch the videos--
