As two international expats that have lived internat lives working in film, Courtney and Melissa realized there is a real demand for filmmakers' short films from elsewhere. This combined with a desire to create a platform and community for films made by LGBTQ+, visible minorities, and women, is at the core of Catfish.
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.
