March 31 - April 2



Our Mission


People shape the future.

Our beliefs and opinions have been formed through years of intensive education and cultural immersion, yet nowadays, our moral compasses are influenced more often by the media, culture, and public discourse. Art has become more vital than ever in sculpting our society. Cinema is often called “the seventh art,” and continues to thrive as a major part of today’s entertainment and cultural sphere.

Films have the ability and the responsibility to communicate poignant messages that affect the moral growth and societal direction of humanity as a whole. In this way, film is not only a form of entertainment, but a powerful voice. At the Cat Fly Film Fest, we strive to provide a platform for up and coming film talent with original voices that will deliver transformative messages of artistically progressive and/or compassionate nature.

Asheville, NC, is a beautiful and quirky small town, isolated within the rich cultural history of the Appalachian Mountains where there is enormous artistic potential and enthusiasm. Cat Fly is created by and for local indie film artists to outlet this energy inherent to the Southeast region with a focus on Asheville talent.
