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 recently created bespoke strategies for a triptych of films from Canadian filmmaker Camille Hollett-French. The trio make up HER STORY (in three parts) with IN THE ABSENCE OF ANGELS:

"In the brutal aftermath of being raped in broad daylight, Crystal, a streetwise community mentor, is forced to make an irreparable decision that will shape the person she’s about to become."

We wish the team all the luck as they head on to the competitive circuit with our guidance. Happy submitting! 😊🎬🌎

We recently created bespoke strategies for a triptych of films from Canadian filmmaker Camille Hollett-French. The trio make up HER STORY (in three parts) with HUSH LITTLE BABY:

"A young mother visits her father in prison where he’s doing time for trying to have sex with children. She’s faced with the most profound realisation of all, one that speaks far more truth about herself than she'd ever expect."

We wish the team all the luck as they head on to the competitive circuit with our guidance. Happy submitting! 😊🎬🌎
