It was only a matter of time before this sort of thing would happen: A film festival for internet cat videos.

Yes, Salt Lake City’s Westminster College is hosting its first-every Internet Cat Video Film Festival on Thursday night.

The event happens Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Bassis Technology Center’s Eportfolio Studio on the Westminster campus, 1840 S. 1300 East, Salt Lake City.

Snacks will be provided, and the first 25 guests will get catnip cat toys.

The event is sponsored by Westminster’s Giovale Library and the Eportfolio Initiative.
