Who Are We?
Echonation Audio & Film Festival is the first of its kind in the world. Driven by a passion for diverse music and audio, three audio enthusiasts decided to start this unique festival. We want to bring together people from all parts of the world who share our love and enthusiasm for audio and its impact on cinema. While audio is our focal point, we intensely focus on the other aspects of filmmaking and screenplay writing. Based in the historic city of Edinburgh, Scotland, interest and inspiration about cinematic sounds and a diverse range of audio came naturally to us. As known to all, this bustling city with its myriad soundscapes has been the centre of attraction for culture enthusiasts for centuries.
What are the categories of entries for participation?

For our initial seasons, the languages in which we are accepting audio stories are - English, French, German, Hindi, Bengali, Italian, Japanese and Korean.
