About the film:
Official Selection, 2022 Cleveland International Film Festival
A heartwarming and tender portrait of men whose lives have been forever changed by their cats, Cat Daddies (2023) takes us on an inspiring journey all across the United States.
These “cat dads” come from all walks of life – a firefighter, a truck driver, a Hollywood stuntman, an ad executive turned cat rescuer, a police officer, a software engineer, an actor/Instagram influencer, a school teacher and an undocumented and disabled immigrant living on the streets of New York City. They couldn’t be any more different, but each of them has a compelling story to tell and share an unconditional love for their cats.
A refreshing and timely exploration of modern masculinity, Cat Daddies (2023) shows us how being a “cat person” has no gender, and that the unlikely bond between man and cat is here to stay.
