The Vice Films feature premiered worldwide at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and stars Lil Bub, Grumpy Cat, Nyan Cat, Keyboard Cat, celebrity memes, and the Internet. Lil Bub & Friendz is the first film to investigate the phenomenon of internet cats and memes, through the tale of Lil Bub’s rise to fame. The film contains some language and situations unsuitable for children under the age of 13.
Lil Bub, a wide-eyed, deformed “perma-kitten,” has won the love and attention of the internet and the world with her unique look and inspiring message — one of positivity and optimism in the face of hardship.
Underpinned by a classic “boy and his dog” story (only this time it’s a cat), Lil Bub & Friendz chronicles Lil Bub’s journey to stardom, the world of “cat people” through the first-ever Internet Cat Video Film Festival, and the virality of YouTube videos and memes fueling the world’s obsession with cats.
Lil Bub adds, “Meow, meow.”
Lil Bub & Friendz is directed and produced by Andy Capper and Juliette Eisner. This is Andy Capper’s second film following his first documentary titled Reincarnated featuring the rebirth of Snoop Dogg as “Snoop Lion.” This is Juliette Eisner’s first film.
