Java Cats Film Festival

  • Orpheus Brewing 1440 Dutch Valley Pl NE, Ste 2001 Atlanta, Georgia 30324 (map)

The Java Cats Cafe opened in the Atlanta, Georgia in March of 2017. Becoming Atlanta's first cat cafe. Working with PAWS Atlanta, Java Cats has helped over 100 kitties find new homes! 

To celebrate its one year anniversary, Java Cat's will be hosting a film festival on May 20th, 2018 of cat themed short films and of cat home videos. 

Short films should be under 5 minutes and obviously have something to do with cats. This can be conveyed through a character, prop, wardrobe choice, or by including a cat in the film. These should be narrative pieces, NOT CAT VIDEOS.

Cat home videos must also be under 5 minutes long. These SHOULD be "cat videos". Send us videos of your cats chasing the dot from a laser pen or of them fascinated by a water faucet!
