Catalfo's short film, Rocketship, was an Official Selection of Dances With Films festival in Los Angeles, one of the industry's premier showcases for emerging talent, held at the legendary Grauman's Chinese Theatre, and was named one of the 'Must See Films' of the Cleveland International Film Festival.  Following its festival run, Rocketship was featured as part of in-flight programming on Virgin Airlines worldwide.  His 2016 film, Split Ticket, a 1947 period drama, won the Director's Award Grand Prize at the 20th Rhode Island International Film Festival, Best Fantasy Film at Atlanta's Dragon Con, the world's largest multi-media popular culture convention in the world, Best Dramatic Short at the Adirondack Film Festival in Glens Falls, New York, Best Drama at Copa Shorts in Arizona, and the Platinum Remi Award at the 50th WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival, among others.  The film has been an official selection of 43 film festivals including the 32nd Boston Film Festival sponsored by NBC Universal and the Hollywood Reporter, LA Shorts Fest, DC Shorts, Napa Valley Film Festival, New York Shorts, Cayman Island Film Festival, HollyShorts, Worldcon Film Festival, Helsinki, Finland, and ITVFest sponsored by HBO, CBS and the Writers Guild of America East.  Split Ticket, Rocketship and Bighorn have all been winners of the Online New England Film Festival sponsored by NewEnglandFilm.com
