More than 160 proud Pittsburgh-area cat parents submitted videos of their little fur balls to Row House Cinema's first week-long Cat Film and Cultural Festival, showing Nov. 10 to 16.

The 70-minute finished product, "Pittsburgh's Pretty Kitties," is, according to a news release, a compilation of the "most purr-fect, a-meow-zing, and totally fur-tastic cat videos Pittsburgh has ever seen."

Considering how much screen time cats and kittens dominate, that claim ought to make feline fans curious.

Submitted videos are being judged on the following categories: Cutest, Funniest, Bravest, or Most Yinzer.

What might qualify a cat as a Yinzer, anyway? One who sleeps with a Terrible Towel? Or one who takes delicate nibbles from a Primanti's tuna sammy?

Those attending will find out on closing night, Nov. 16, when winners are announced. Row House Cinema is located at 4115 Butler St. in Lawrenceville.

Videos selected for "Pittsburgh's Pretty Kitties" will be judged locally and become eligible to win unspecified prizes.

Show times for "Pittsburgh's Pretty Kitties" are:

• 6:45 p.m., Nov. 10

• Noon and 3:20 p.m. Nov. 11

• 12:45 and 6 p.m. Nov. 12

• 8:45 p.m. Nov. 13

• 3:30 p.m. Nov. 14

• 5:15 p.m. Nov. 15

• 7:15 p.m. Nov. 16

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
