Catherine Wignall is a screenwriter and cat lover from England who made her feature film with the Blumhouse YA horror-comedy CRAWLERS, shortly after graduating from the UCLA Screenwriting MFA program. She then created and wrote GOOD LUCK HAVE FUN, a middle-grade romcom YouTube series for MGM and Brat TV. She was recently named one of Austin Film Festival's Screenwriters to Watch and has multiple projects in development with global production companies.
In the UK, Catherine was selected for the inaugural Screen Yorkshire Flex Development Lab, the BFI Development program, the BFI Short Film Fund, and the BFI Young Audience Content Fund where she ran her own writersroom while developing her TV series, GHOUL FRIENDS (Bombito Productions).
Catherine is an Underwire-Euroscript winner, a two-time Austin Film Festival Comedy Pilot Finalist, and a Sundance Second Rounder. For her writing she has been awarded a Fulbright scholarship, the Pigott BAFTA scholarship, the Carl David Memorial Fellowship in Film and Video for LGBT+ representation, and the Larry Thor Scholarship. After graduating from UCLA, she became a BAFTA LA Newcomer, and then a BAFTA Connect member. When not writing, she spends most of her time wishing she was a witch, a cat in a well-off family, or Harry Styles’ best friend.
