The Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation showcases abstract animation and
unconventional character animation that is innovative, challenging and
inspiring. Festival programs feature outstanding experimental animation of all
sorts: classic films, new works, and rare masterpieces.

The four programs of short films in the 2011 festival spotlight a range of
animation techniques, including paper cutouts, stop-motion, computer animation,
cameraless films, and a wide variety of hand-drawn methods. The content of the
films is even more varied, and includes cosmic collages, psychedelic
characters, surrealistic narratives, and pioneering work with computer

The 2011 festival will feature animator Lori Damiano in person. Lori D will
present a program of her films, including a preview screening of "Lord I: The
Records Keeper." Other festival highlights include "Solar Sight," a new film
from Lawrence Jordan, "Divers in the Rain" by Priit and Olga Parn, "Joie de
Vivre," an art nouveau fantasy ballet from 1936, and "Cibernetik 5.3," a
legendary psychedelic computer animation from the early 1960's by John Stehura.
Full program lineups are viewable on the festival website.

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