Poster for the New York Cat Film FestivalThese films are not the familiar YouTube videos of cats doing amusing things. They are documentary and fiction films, 2 to 26 minutes in length, each with a story to tell – and at the heart of the story, there will be a cat (or cats!). The program, which runs for about two hours in total, is designed for adult audiences but will also be enjoyable for children 10 & up.
