Forget YouTube videos of cute cats doing crazy things: if you're fond of felines, Kedi is about to become your new favourite film. The insightful documentary follows the lives of cats living in Turkey, offering a kitty's-eye view of the meowing creatures that prowl the streets. Part of the fabric of Istanbul, each has their own distinctive personality, which director Ceyda Torun captures with affection — and yet, the feature doesn't just aim to evoke an emotional reaction, but to chronicle the role that cats play in society.

After screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival last year, the film comes to Brisbane's New Farm Cinemas from June 15, and they have quite the opening night planned. There'll be cats. Oh yes, there'll be cats. They'll not only be on screen, but prowling around the foyer beforehand.

Joining forces with the Lucky Cat Cafe, the session will boast fabulous felines for pre-movie petting, plus a cat-themed stall selling everything from kitty jewellery to greeting cards to socks. We'll just say what we're all thinking: it's going to be purrfect.
