Nolfi co-wrote the feature film CAT SCRATCH FEVER, which won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the 2012 Brooklyn Film Festival and was recently programmed at the Museum of the Moving Image as well as the Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturdays. A lo-fi, sci-fi comedy, CAT SCRATCH FEVER follows the surreal adventures of two young women who discover they can observe their own parallel universes online and become consumed with stalking themselves in other dimensions. Amy Taubin, writing in Artforum, called CAT SCRATCH FEVER “heady, funny, and scary.” She has written and directed several short films, including UNLIMITED, an impressionistic evocation of nighttime New York as seen through the eyes of a young Chinese immigrant getting by selling the cast-offs of others oneBay. UNLIMITED was an official selection of SXSW. Other work includes MOUTH BABIES (co-directed with Lisa Duva) an experimental horror film that explores deep-seated fears of pregnancy. An official selection of the Slamdance Film Festival, Florida Film Festival, and Maryland Film Festival among others, MOUTH BABIES won Best Short at the Seattle True Independent Film Festival.

Katherine focused her work at the Colony on developing her script, THE JENNYS, about two women, both named Jenny, who are cubicle­mates and best friends forever until one of them gets a promotion and ruins EVERYTHING.
