Catriona MacLeod

Cat is an award-winning cabaret performer now writing and making films.
Cat’s work explores folklore, feminism and the intersection of visual storytelling and music, often blending sharp social commentary with absurdist humour. Her first solo show ‘Cat Loud’s Big Night In’ debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015 to 5 star reviews and subsequently toured the UK. It was followed by blues fairytale ‘Wayward’ and apocalypse cabaret ‘To the End of the World!’, winning a VAULT Festival Origins Award for Outstanding New Work in 2018. Her first short film, ‘HOWL’, was made remotely over Zoom using an iPhone as part of YouTube film series The End, a collaborative project showcasing Scottish female filmmaking talent. To date, the film has been officially selected for several short film festivals and won Best Micro Short at Phoenix Shorts in January 2021. She is a Short Circuit Convergence screenwriter and in addition to developing her first feature, she is working on a slate of bold and distinctive short films with collaborator Misha McCullagh.
