Barzan Rostami’s much-applauded short will compete with 76 films from 26 countries at the 15th edition of the American screening event.
Also produced by Rostami, the story of ‘Echo’ is about understanding the wildlife and environmental abuse and its consequences on human beings.
‘Echo’ has recently participated in some international film festivals as well, including the 4th Rosarito Film Festival in the US, the 6th Corto e a Capto- Premio Mario Puzo Film Festival in Italy as well as the 6th Global Impact Film Festival (GIDC) in the US.
Late in May 2020, ‘Echo’ went on screen at the 4th Southern Cone International Film Festival (FICCSUR) in Mexico and succeeded to grab the Best Animation Short Film award of the event.
The Sunnyside Shorts International Film Festival aims at bringing cultures together through the art of filmmaking.
The festival’s first virtual edition will announce the winners on September 26, 2020.
