Hear My Eyes screenings are audio-visual events that push the conventions of film and sound beyond their familiar forms. Translating the original cinematic experience for the 21st century, the Hear My Eyes team work with musicians to reinterpret a film’s soundtrack and perform it live at the screening.
 

The most exciting event at MIFF is a cinematic and musical collaboration across worlds from Melbourne’s Hear My Eyes, a project in which film screenings are accompanied by live scores.

Whether you’ve watched the flick countless times or haven’t caught it since it first graced screens, you’ve never seen — or heard — it quite like this.
— Concrete Playground
Putting a modern spin on the days when film music was provided by an energetic in-house organist, Hear My Eyes put on special screenings that pair a recent film with an original score played live by local musicians.
