Festival Formula Ltd

Founded by Katie McCullough, Festival Formula is the culmination of more that 12 years of experience strategising films for the competitive festival circuit. As a leading light for filmmakers taking their first steps onto the global festival stage, Katie both advises clients and creates bespoke festival strategies tailored to the unique assets of their film. By bringing together all of her different roles - consultant, advisor, strategist, submissions manager, film analyst - she is the go-to thought leader for filmmakers who want to build their presence on the festival circuit. Festival Formula is all about helping filmmakers realise their potential through their work. We alleviate the pressure of submitting to the festival circuit so they can focus on making their next award-winning project.
