‘Henri, Existential Cat’ Sweeps Internet Cat Video Film Festival

Subscribe to TheFW on

You may remember Henri, the existential art film cat. If not, acquaint yourself, because you’re looking at a STAR. Henri’s movie, ‘Henri 2, Paw de Deux,’ won the Golden Kitty for Best Cat Video on the Internet at the Internet Cat Video Film Festival in Minneapolis. Oh, also there’s an Internet Cat Video Film Festival now, and over 10,000 people visited it last week.

The festival, held at the Walker Art Center, played 79 crowd-sourced cat videos, which were carefully selected from the 10,000 that were submitted from all around the world. That’s right — somebody had to watch 10,000 cat videos and apparently didn’t lose their mind.

Henri was chosen as the winner by visitors to the Walker Art Center’s website, who were allowed to vote for their pick. His owner, Will Braden, appreciated the victory, and is currently making a living selling Henri-themed merchandise on the web. He’s raking in $1,000 a week from t-shirts and coffee mugs and should have a book coming out soon too. Still, Henri, he mopes.
