Telling good stories that move people

Cathartic Pictures tells stories for the screen – cinema, television, online and more. We set out to tell a good story and to engage hearts and minds, to entertain, inform, to help make the world a better place, and to build community around our content. We embrace the opportunities in diverse storytelling and have a passion for the planet, which has led us to focus on female driven horror and sci fi, multicultural drama with heart, and environmental impact.
