Kate Dolan is one of the fastest rising directors working in Ireland at the moment. The last year in particular has seen Kate’s 2017 horror short Catcalls feature at numerous festivals both at Ireland and abroad, including Women in Horror Month, Fantasia, GAZE, Frightfest and more. Kate has also contributed to the rising profile of Irish bands like Bitch Falcon and Pillow Queens through her music video, and is one of the filmmakers chosen by Screen Ireland to take part in their inaugural POV scheme, supporting the development and production of low-budget live action feature films from female Writers and Directors.
