Leading With Better Stories


Matt Dickerson


As the President of Catalyst Movies, Matt has boldly led the charge since the company’s early stages of development.

With nearly 20 years of marketing experience, Matt saw many movie successes and unfortunately, many failures in the box office.

The odds have always seemed stacked against smaller films who couldn’t afford the Hollywood marketing budget and were limited to the number of theaters and days that the theater allowed.

The goal of most filmmakers is that people far and wide will share in the power of their story. For too long, the theatrical system has limited the audience and taken the lion’s share of the income from filmmakers.

Now, Matt is working to change that with Catalyst Movies.


Matt’s heart is to see movies that encourage people to live a better story to be available to anyone, anywhere, at anytime, and at absolutely no cost.
