There’s a cat movie festival here in Dubai

Cinema Akil, Dubai's first arthouse cinema,

What a meow-vellous way to spend a weekend – watching cat videos.

Dubai’s only art-house cinema is devoting an entire weekend to cat content and, fur real, we’re excited.

Cinema Akil in Alserkal Avenue has created the purr-fect weekend for lovers of moggies.

Feline fans might think they’ve watched every cute cat video on YouTube, but the Cat Video Fest is litter-ally the best compilation of kitteh shorts from 2019.

Part of the un-meow-sible Cat Weekend, the compilation is the absolute cat’s whiskers in feline film.

Tickets are also on sale for anime The Cat Returns, charming cartoon A Cat in Paris, Japanese drama Rent-A-Cat and Kedi, a documentary about the stray cats of Instanbulall showing at Dubai’s first art-house cinema.

Mad about cats (or their arch enemies, the loyal dog)? Here’s how to go about adopting a stray pooch or moggie.

Tickets from AED 52.50. Timings and bookings at
