The forthcoming Edinburgh International Film Festival will include a new strand - Sound Tracks – exploring the relationship between music and film.

As part of the strand, independent record label Domino Records’ will be hosting an event inviting advance film submissions for live editing, featuring musician Steve Mason from Beta Band.
There will also be two discussion events, I want to be a Composer and Music Supervision, whilst eight budding composers will be invited to take part in a “Composer Mini Lab”, which includes workshops and masterclasses.
Music documentaries featuring in the festival’s main line-up include Esther Anderson’s Bob Marley: The Making Of A Legend – A Portrait Of Markey, the joint UK premiere (with Sheffield Doc/Fest) of Jeanie Finlay’s Sound It Out, about the last surviving record shop in the North East of England and the European premiere of Morgan Neville’s Troubadours, about the legendary Hollywood club which hosted James Taylor and Carole King.

EIFF’s new director James Mullighan described Sound Tracks as an event for “film lovers, music lovers, filmmakers and musicians.”
