LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: Intercat '69

Presenting 10 fantastic flights of feline fancy guaranteed to out-fascinate a laser pointer, a scratching post and a year’s supply of catnip combined! Since the dawn of time, humans have devised new ways of appeasing our feline overlords. With the advent of 16mm experimental filmmaking came a cinematic celebration of cat-astrophic proportions: Pola Chapelle’s International Cat Film Festival! Compiling the fest’s “best in show,” Intercat ’69 features artistic odes to the Felis silvestris from such independent luminaries as Maya Deren, Robert Breer and Standish Lawder. Pay your respects to the feline pioneers of the silver screen with four-legged fantasies ranging from the erotic to the educational, the tear-jerkingly gorgeous to the totally adorable. These shorts leave the Internet’s increasingly overflowing litter box of kitty-lebrities in the dust. So put down that can of Fancy Feast and strut on over to the film festival that launched a thousand hairballs and declawed it’s detractors through sheer purr-fection.
