Catfish Shorts! Short Film Festival is an annual festival created to showcase short films created by women from around the globe.
Catfish Shorts! Film Festival aims to promote and support women in creative industries, with an emphasis on collaboration and diversity. The festival is founded on a very international outlook with industry judges from around the world.
Catfish Shorts hosted its inaugural event in February 2017 at The Tribeca Screening Room and Soho House and has since continued to promote events and collaborations throughout the year. Key events have included a "pre-Cannes" networking event, a screening and art evening in Vancouver and two festivals in Brixton at The Whirled Cinema.
Our upcoming festival will be in 2021 in London, England. Stay tuned for updates on dates and locations!
