Internet Cat Film Festival
F A M A L A M was created during a particularly productive nap time. My son at the time was 11 months old and I had been researching 'things to do with babies'. The usual franchised baby sensory, music class or nct group was all I could find and I figured that wasn't good enough.
I thought that it would be good to develop a project that encouraged families to expand their horizons and explore new ideas together. A project that could encourage interactivity between children and their parents empowering them as curious co-creators of ideas and cultural experiences. A project that explored parenting and play in the 21st Century.
F A M A L A M's first project was the Internet Cat Film Festival with Flatpack Film Festival in March 2015.
"Inspired by our American cousins we're bringing the first Internet Cat Film Festival to Birmingham. The films have been chosen by a team of under 5s who have been through some pretty 'rigorous' curatorial training to pick the cutest, funniest and strangest videos and we’re bringing them to the big screen as part of Flatpack."
