2013 Catdance Film Festival

Freshstep Cat Litter is sponsoring a film festival called Catdance.  At first I pooh-poohed the idea but I checked one submission, then another, and then another.  One tale concerns the catalog order of bedroom furnishings that happens to include a cat.  Then there is a 1950s training video for the felines who are considering including a human in their lives.  Or what happens to a cat famous for his youtube videos but who can no longer pull in the viewership with his recent stuff.  But I dare you watch "Dear Rocky"shown above without tearing up.

Below is probably my favorite--Meows in the Afternoon--a kind of Japanese, existential thriller on the feline life.  It is a re-imaging of the 1940's movie "Meshes of the Afternoon."
