Tiny Cat Gallery Film Club. Open Call

cats like watching films just as much as humans do pass the popcorn please

Have you made a short film you think the micro gallery community would like?

  • It could be stop motion, drawn and animated, computer generated or filmed.
  • It might be a tiny gallery tour or something about small artworks.
  • We like films that feature cats in a lead role as we are generally under represented.
  • We may be interested in mouse related cookery shows, films that feature warm places to sleep or documentaries about successful ways to annoy humans.

Ideally your film will be on IGTV so it can be shared on Instagram.
If it is on a different platform we will talk to you about how best to share your work.
  • Message us a link and a little bit about the film.
  • If we like it we will share it. We are doing this for fun, not for money.
Now where is the mouse flavouring for the popcorn?
