Put your paws up in the air for another weekend of free music, movies and cats.

Yes, cats.

Cat lovers and begrudging friends or partners of a cat lover, expect to be sitting at FilmScene sometime this weekend for CatVideoFest, an annual event that comes to theaters nationwide. Meanwhile, Summer of the Arts continues two series presenting free, local entertainment, while Wildwood BBQ & Saloon hosts a benefit concert.

Here are five things to do this weekend in Johnson County.

This weekend, FilmScene is presenting a screening sure to delight lovers and admirers of our sophisticated, whiskered, feline friends.

CatVideoFest, which will be shown Saturday and Sunday at FilmScene at the Chauncey, is a 75-minute compilation of cat videos from submissions, music videos and the internet.

The silliness and cleverness of cats will be on full display for CatVideoFest-goers to enjoy, and a dollar from each ticket sold benefits the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center and other animal welfare initiatives locally.
