2nd Annual New York Cat Film Festival - SVA Theatre
December 01, 2018 - New York
2:45PM PROGRAM #1 – CATS RULE (68 min) 4:30PM PROGRAM #2 – FERAL LOVE (76 min) The two programs are completely different – each a medley of films celebrating the fascinating mystique of felines. To have the full Cat Film Festival experience you'll want to see both programs, which are appropriate for everyone in the family. Tickets are non-refundable. Everyone in the audience will receive a gift at the door. A portion of every ticket benefits the NYC Feral Cat Initiative. There is no nudity, sexual reference, vulgar language or physical or verbal abuse between people – and no animals were harmed – in these films. Any tears you might shed would be tears of joy for happy endings. The films can be watched by all members of the family, but are intended for adult audiences – with sophisticated ideas and subtle themes. The programs are best for more mature children who may be accustomed to "foreign-type" films.

In his 1982 documentary Room 666, German director Wim Wenders asked the question "Is cinema a dead language, an art which is already in the process of decline?" to directors including Steven Spielberg, Michelangelo Antonioni, Jean-Luc Godard, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and others. Nearly 35 years later, the makers of Room H.264 invited filmmakers to answer the same question. Each filmmaker was recorded under specific conditions replicating those of the Wenders film: the subjects were left alone in a hotel room with a tripod mounted camera running for ten minutes. Room H.264: Astoria, NY, January 2018, projected on the main screen in the Video Screening Amphitheater, is a film created from footage captured at the Paper Factory Hotel in Long Island City in January 2018.
