For the first time, cats took on Hollywood from the other side of the camera.

The trailer for the film is being shown in 10 select markets around the country, and one of them is yours!

Friskies Premieres Cat Diaries: The First Ever Movie Filmed by Cats

Hollywood is Purring for this Whimsical Film Short, Featuring Feline Stars from Coast-to-Coast, Revealing the Magical World of Cats

ST. LOUIS, Mo., Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Hollywood has some new stars in town and they're pretty cool cats — literally! Last night, Friskies brand cat food premiered "Cat Diaries: The First Ever Movie Filmed by Cats" and gave viewers a look into their magical world. This short film features documentary style footage taken directly from cats, who donned video cameras on their collars to provide around-the-clock coverage of their daily lives. From apartments to homes, from New York to California, viewers are taken on a tour across the country to see life from a cat's perspective.

In true Hollywood fashion the film was unveiled during a red-carpet event at The Grove's Pacific Theatre in Los Angeles. While the film's feline stars took center stage for the evening, celebrities like film and television actress Denise Richards were on hand to help celebrate. A VIP cocktail reception kicked-off the evening at the Whisper Lounge and a special screening of a recently released animated film directly followed. It was the purrfect Tinseltown event.

To create the four-minute film, a handful of cats from across the country were equipped with HD video cameras around their collars to collect documentary style footage of their daily lives. The film stars a number of these "celebricats" including Charlene Butterbean, Fudge, Gizmo and Milo as they explore, play and enjoy life. Friskies worked with Los Angeles based director/producerErik Denno and editor/director Jason Farrell to spotlight cats on the silver screen. Bryan Lee Brown and Paul Figueroa created the film's original music.

"Friskies wanted to share the magical world of cats in an entirely new way. We want the whole world to see and enjoy cats' unique personalities and perspectives," said Daniel Henke-Cilenti, senior brand manager of Friskies. "To give cats the spotlight they deserve, we made them the stars of their own film and celebrated in true Hollywood fashion."

A shorter version of the movie will be screened at select theaters from December 10 to December 23 in the following ten markets:

Holtsville, NY

Anaheim Hills, CA

Orland Park, IL

Center Valley, PA

Brentwood, CA

Randolph, MA

Conyers, GA

Silver Spring, MD

Conroe, TX

St. Louis, MO
