Katie is the ultimate resource in smoothly disseminating my films off the hard drive and onto screens in all corners of the globe. So effective she has been that my short films are fast becoming better travelled that I am. Sometimes I wish I could travel in a million little pieces via web transfer to get to every screening.
Katie takes away all the stress and gets more showings of your film than you could ever imagine achieving by yourself.
Katie is amazing. As a filmmaker who makes comedy and with so many festivals to choose from worldwide it can be very difficult to know which festivals your film might suit taste wise. Katie’s years of experience and expertise makes sure your film is getting to the right people and is achievable on a budget you set. I really can’t recommend her enough. It’s brilliant to have Festival Formula handling and making sure my entries get to festivals on time, no more running to the post office in a panic sweat or watching a loading bar, all I have to think about is my next script.
Katie is the reason we have won awards for our film work, the reason our website is up-to-date, the reason we are managing to build an audience online through social media. Filmmakers have the constant problem of spending time making films or engaging with the outside world – Katie bridges that gap brilliantly, ensuring you can concentrate on getting the next one made.
Until I contacted Katie at Festival Formula, the process of researching and selecting festivals was a very daunting, time-consuming and expensive task. After too many unsuccessful attempts on my own I decided to take the plunge with Festival Formula. Within a month of working with Katie, we had our first festival selection with three more following not too far behind! Aside from this, Katie maximised the value of our applications and took care of the festival applications. I’ll have no hesitation in using Festival Formula for my future projects.
Festival Formula have brought essential expertise to getting our first short film ‘Trouble’ into festivals. Best of all they delivered results with three festival entry successes – two in the US and one in the UK!
The knowledge and expertise Katie brought to our crowdfunding campaign were absolutely invaluable. She was completely committed to what we were trying to achieve, both creatively and financially, and supported us throughout the process. It felt like we were in a completely safe pair of hands and I have since recommended Katie to just about every other filmmaker I know who is considering running a crowdfunding campaign!
Without Katie our film simply would not have achieved the success it has to date. With the film premiering at Palm Springs and then going on to be BAFTA Longlisted, the film is continuing to rack up high profile screenings in festival worldwide. Her attention to detail, tireless effort and comprehensive knowledge of the short film festival circuit has been invaluable. I hope to work along side her on many many future projects, she is the first person I will turn to for help. A bloody God send!
