There's a 'Lil Bub' Doc Coming to Tribeca Film Fest

Lil Bub & Friends VICE / Tribeca Film Festival

Well, we're sure these screenings will sell out in a matter of seconds.

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival has the honor of hosting the world premiere of "Lil Bub & Friends," a documentary that explores the phenomenon of Internet cats and memes through the tale of Lil Bub's rise to online fame.

You've seen Lil Bub before (and probably a lot) — she's the wide-eyed "perma-kitten" who's won the love and attention of the Internet with her collection of memes that inspire perseverance and positivity in the face of hardship.

Starring Lil Bub, Grumpy Cat, Nyan Cat, Keyboard Cat and the Internet as Itself, "Lil Bub & Friends" chronicles Lil Bub's journey to stardom, the world of "cat people" through the first-ever Internet Cat Video Film Festival and the ultra-virality of cat-related videos and memes. The film is co-directed by Andy Capper and Juliette Eisner; Capper recently directed "Reincarnated," the documentary about Snoop Dogg's rebirth as "Snoop Lion."

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival will be held April 17-28. The screening schedule hasn't been announced yet, but get a load at what you're in for below.
