Details on an upcoming festival of experimental animation in Chicago -

Eyeworks is a new film festival featuring abstract animation and unconventional
character animation. Festival programs showcase outstanding experimental
animation of all sorts: classic films, new works, overlooked masterpieces, and
quirky footnotes of history.

The Eyeworks programs showcase a range of animation techniques, including paper
cutouts, stop-motion, 3D computer animation, and a wide variety of hand-drawn
methods. The content of the films is even more varied, and includes cosmic
abstraction, psychedelic characters, geometric patterning, gestural figuration,
and surrealistic narratives.

Eyeworks celebrates animated moving images that express unusual vision, unusual
approaches, and unusual style.
