Cat Fly Indie Film Fest

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.

Cat Fly will be screening our first indie feature film Friday, September 7, 2018 at Bold Rock Hard Cider as part of the Cat Fly Summer Series. The screening will be held outside so be sure to bring blankets and lawn chairs.

This event will be free of charge with a suggested attendee donation of $10 for fundraising efforts. Funds raised through donations will be put towards Cat Fly Halloween (Oct. 2018) and other future Cat Fly events.

Awards & Prizes
Only one film will be selected for this special event! Because this event is a fundraiser for our upcoming Halloween event, the selected filmmaker will receive 2 FREE TICKETS and a WAIVER CODE for Cat Fly Halloween 2018!

We are a non-competitive film festival. We prefer to keep the focus on the art of filmmaking.
