Cat Film Festival 

Saturday, October 24 | 12:00 PM - Fairfax, VA
Saturday, October 24 | 12:00 PM - Washington, DC
Wednesday, October 27 | 7:00 PM - Bethesda Row

The Cat Film Festival™ is an exploration through the film of the fascinating felines who share our lives, creating a shared audience experience that inspires, educates, and entertains.  Cats have their own unique and indescribable bond with people – even when living independently as community cats. For far too long, felines have been the “invisible” part of the human-animal bond and it’s time to shine the spotlight on these magnificent creatures and the humans devoted to them. A portion of every ticket at this showing will benefit the Humane Rescue Alliance.
