Tull Stories is an independent film distribution and cinema support agency based in the UK.

With a long and established history of ‘connecting people with stuff’, we release films in cinemas and online, and help cinemas find – and understand – their audiences.

In distribution, Tull Stories is both an all-rights distributor and servicing partner. We work with a rich palette of documentaries, world cinema, experimenta, outdoor/adventure and independent film.

In exhibition, we provide experience and specialist support for cinemas across film booking and programming, audience research and development, staff development and fundraising.

Recent clients and partners include Doc Society, the British Film Institute, Indigo, Oska Bright Film Festival, Encounters Film FestivalMet Film Distribution, Guerilla Films, Park the Bus and many more. 

Founded by John Brabourne Awardee Jonny Tull in 2017, Tull Stories is built on a foundation of almost 30 years of experience and success in the UK cinema sector.
