Cannes and Sundance are a little too highbrow for your tastes a new film festival launching in Minneapolis could be just the ticket.

This rather unique (and slightly bizarre) celebration of feline frolics is the first time a festival has been dedicated to kitties.

Organisers have clearly cottoned on to the cute cat craze sweeping the internet, with some clips being viewed by millions.

  • Man who left polygamist Mormon cult finds kitten encased in concrete in back yard 'as threat from sect leaders'
  • Survival of the fiercest: Wildebeest takes on 18ft killer crocodile... and there can be only one winner
  • Baby whale dies after getting separated from its mother during Alaska storm despite marine expert's round-the-clock battle to save it

 

Sensational videos of cats grooming, playing and generally just being too adorable for words have tugged at the nation’s heart strings.

So THAT'S why cats don't go bowling: Let's just say it didn't end well for this kitty

Most recently Bub, a 'dwarf' cat with stubby legs and bulging eyes, became a major online hit.

 

She shot to fame after her owner dedicated a YouTube channel and Facebook page to her and it is not difficult to see why.

Born with several genetic mutations, Bub will remain looking like a kitten for the rest of her life.

And footage of her playing, running, even just purring, have had major success on the video-sharing website.
