Quarantine Cat Film Fest Aims To Raise Money For Indie Theaters


Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. This one's for all those cat owners out there who have thought to themselves, man, my cat could be a star. The Quarantine Cat Film Fest wants to take your cat videos from the Internet to the silver screen. Brian Mendelssohn is creating a streaming showcase of the best feline flash films to raise money for indie theaters hurt by COVID-19. When asked if he would follow the cat film fest with one for dogs, Mendelssohn replied, no one wants to watch dogs. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
