PROGRAM #1 CATS RULE (1 hr 7 min)

BETH IS NOT A CAT (3 min) Created by MARCUS, a charming comparison of Beth (not a cat, but looking like one) and a real orange tabby cat.

CAT ANATOMY (4 min) Kim Best explores the nicknames children assign to various parts of a cat.

CAT NATION: A Film About Japan’s Crazy Cat Culture (26 min) Tim Delmastro’s documentary about Japan’s extraordinary love of kitty cats.

INSTAGRAM CAT MOM (5 min) Jess Spawn’s mockumentary takes us behind the scenes on the lengths people might go to for the purrfect photo to post online.

SAMANTHA AND THE ROCK CATS (11 min) Jacob Feiring’s documentary follows a woman who travels the country with her cat show.

OFF FOR THE WEEKEND (11 min) Brittany Severance’s funny story of a young woman’s challenges proving her independence from her mother with a weekend of pet-sitting-gone-wrong.

THE PET EFFECT (2 min)

– 20 minute intermission –

PROGRAM #2 FERAL LOVE (1 hr 17 min)

ART’S AUTOMOTIVE (6 min) Erik Dumas’ animated tale of an orphaned kitten who bonds with an automotive repair robot in the future.

FERAL LOVE (1hr 11min) Markie Hancock’s engaging documentary about Dorian Rence, who appears to be a stereotypical “crazy cat lady,” devoted for a decade to caring for a feral cat colony in Riverside Park in NYC, bringing them food and shelter in all weather and personal challenges. But it turns out Dorian has another devotion in addition to her cherished felines: she also plays the viola – specifically with the New York Philharmonic, for over 40 years!
