Cat-centric viral videos are one of the hottest commodities on the internet, and last year these feline-focused shorts finally got the serious spotlight they deserve when Fresh Step launched The Catdance Film Festival, a celebration of independent cat cinema that takes place during the iconic Sundance Film Festival on January 18, 2014.

This year, Switched at Birth star Gilles Marini has been tapped as the host; a pairing that makes so much sense given his purrrr-fect portrait in People's Sexiest Man Alive issue where he cozied up to his cat, Penelope.

The feline flicks will be exclusively screened in 3D this year and after the screening, America will have the chance to vote for their favorite feline film, with the grand prize winner receiving $50,000 and a golden litter scoop. For more information, click here!
