Felines on Film May 4-Jun 4, 2017 Screening Room "There are few films that are not improved by the presence of a cat." --Anne Billson, The Telegraph Sadly, the Internet Cat Video Festival has been retired, but in its place YBCA presents a curated series of films centered around our furry, friendly, frisky, and occasionally fearsome feline friends.
