Hamptons Doc Fest and the Southampton Arts Center are partnering to host an outdoor summer screening of the film “Cat Daddies” at the Southampton Arts Center on Sunday, July 17. Grounds will open at 7 PM and the film will start at dusk.
The multiple award-winning film directed by Mye Hoang, former executive director of the San Diego Asian Film Festival, follows eight unique men whose lives have been changed by their love for cats. They include a stunt man, a truck driver, a tech worker, a schoolteacher, an actor/Instagram influencer, a homeless man, and a group of firefighters. The screening will be followed by a live interview with Director Hoang. ARF (the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons) will be on site from 7 to 8 PM with their adoption van full of kittens and cats and will collect unopened cat food donations for distribution to those in need, each donor receiving a free bag of popcorn.
Guests are encouraged to bring a beach chair or blanket and a picnic. There will also be a dinner/movie package option at Claude’s Restaurant at the Southampton Inn. Visit southamptoninn.com to reserve a $50 package which includes a three-course dinner and the film. Tickets are $5 for children under 12, free for SAC members, and $15 for non-members and can be purchased at hamptonsdocfest.com and southamptoncenter.org.
