Cat Fly is an Asheville-based film festival that serves up and coming indie film artists of the Southeast Region, cultivating community and the passion of homegrown filmmaking.
We are a mostly non-competitive film festival. We prefer to keep the focus on the art of filmmaking. An audience reaction award will be given to the film with the best crowd reaction.
