Internet Cat Video Festival 2013 - The Internet Cat Video Festival was conceived at the Walker Art Center as a modest celebration to bring online communities together in the real world. The #catvidfest became its own viral phenomenon, drawing more than 10,000 fans to the Walker’s Open Field and winning the attention of local, national, and international audiences and media. The event spawned “copy-cat” festivals-and a touring program-around the country.
