K2 Publicity is a Los Angeles based PR firm specializing in film and entertainment, both domestic and international. A modern PR agency, updating traditional methods with the ever changing media landscape to offer innovative and cost-effective campaigns.
K2 Publicity seamlessly manages both east and west coast campaigns, as well as digital press, eliminating the unnecessary extra costs and inefficiencies of utilizing multiple PR agencies on a single film or project.
We think creatively and excel at film release strategy, festival strategy, media relations, talent relations and event planning. As publicists, we partner and work closely with filmmakers and distributors to ensure their films receive maximum attention and exposure.
K2 Publicity represents films and clients at all the major festivals and markets around the world, including TIFF, Sundance, Cannes, SXSW, Tribeca and Berlin, among others.
K2 Publicity is also proud to support underrepresented filmmakers, particularly in the LGBTQ community, and each year represents the Inside Out LGBT Film Festival in Toronto and NewFest, New York's LGBT film festival.
Kara MacLean and Kevin McLean are the presidents of the LA-based K2 Publicity, and have represented films at the top festivals around the world, including Sundance, TIFF, Cannes, Tribeca, Berlin, SXSW, Venice and others. They, individually and on behalf of the company, have worked on the international and domestic campaigns for countless films and have worked with some of the world’s most talented filmmakers.
Kara and Kevin happen to have very similar last names but are not related or married, despite the number of times they've been asked. They are both originally from Toronto, Canada, and joined forces in 2016 to create K2, and each now call Los Angeles home.
