Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation

The Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation returns to Pioneer Works for the sixth year. Founded in 2010, Eyeworks is a curated annual festival that showcases abstract animation and unconventional character animation. The festival will feature two curated lineups of short films that include classic and recently restored films, works from rising names in the field, and premieres of new films, with works shown on 16mm and video. The 2018 Eyeworks Festival is co-curated by directors Alexander Stewart and Lilli Carré, who will introduce the screenings in person.
