Portrait #3: Seeyousound
Today we’re having a closer look at another one of the founding members of the network : Seeyousound, a festival created in 2015 in Turin exploring music in every frame through movies, performances and education. They offer several competitive sections (documentaries, short films, video clips…) and recently created a new competition called Frequencies, a contest for musicians, producers and sound designers for the original soundtrack of a silent film. A few years ago, Seeyousound started exporting the festival format, in a reduced version, to Milan, Bologna, Florence, Palermo and Lecce.
