Praise for MadCat
"The MadCat filmgoing experience crosses between a history lesson, a
technical showcase, and a panorama of contemporary film. It has the feeling
of a much older festival, one with an established direction and a stable
mission. The festival devotes its resources to programming instead of
panels, workshops, and parties. The cineaste nature of the MadCat, where the
most important space is the screen, creates a low-key environment. Shaped by
Ben-Dov's commitment to showing the best work she can find, regardless of
age, nationality, or genre, MadCat consistently presents historically and
culturally relevant programming." - The Independent Film and Video Monthly

"At MadCat, being avant-garde is just as important as being female."
- San Francisco Chronicle

"Refreshingly unique!" Film/Tape World

"MadCat brings a down-home approach to screening with outdoor venues,
barbeques and live musical accompaniment." Film/Tape World
