I am an award-winning Writer/Director, whose work has become recognised for its poignant style and original vision through combining social commentaries on Britain within a variety of genres.


The Porcelain Ground (2014), was a semi-finalist for the Shortcuts to Hell Vol.2 competition and was released on iTunes's as part of the Shortcuts Anthology.

The Paper Round (2014), was selected to premiere at Frightfest Glasgow 2015. Scream magazine called it, "A fantastic short from newcomer Katie Bonham who directs her short with poise and precision." Screen Daily called it "intriguing and mournful".

Mindless (2015) stars horror legend Nicholas Vince (Nightbreed, Hellraiser), and played at film festivals worldwide, and received two 'Best International Film' awards. This was also the second time we were invited to hold a World Premiere at Frightfest in Glasgow.

Mab (2017) held its World Premiere at Frightfest in London and screened its Welsh Premiere at Abertoir Horror Film Festival, where it won The Abertoir Award, and the prestigious Méliès d'Argent in association with the European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation. Mab went on to compete for the prestigious Méliès d'Or at SITGES International Film Festival in 2018.

My latest psychological short horror film, Midnight (2019), held its World Premiere at Frightfest, screened at London International Film Festival, and is currently touring festivals around the world.


I have also just completed a short film which was commissioned by the BBC and is due to broadcast on BBC Four later this year.
