Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation at Pioneer Works

The Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation will present its 2016 festival at Pioneer Works this November. Blending an appreciation of classical animation with the sensibilities of avant-garde cinema and the visual culture of alternative comics, the Eyeworks programs showcase abstract animation and unconventional character animation.


In its first festival since relocating from Chicago to Los Angeles, Eyeworks will return to Pioneer Works for the fourth consecutive year. Two programs of short films combine classic and contemporary work, and highlights include films from avant-garde animation legends Robert Breer, Suzan Pitt, and Paul Glabicki, and from contemporary animators Barry Doupé, Peter Burr, and Martin Sulzer. Films will be screened on 16mm and on video.


Eyeworks is a curated annual festival that exhibits classic and contemporary experimental animation. Eyeworks focuses on animated films that express singular creative vision, personal dedication, and imaginative technical approaches. Founded in Chicago in 2010 by filmmakers Alexander Stewart and Lilli Carré, Eyeworks has presented screenings in Stockholm, Helsinki, Zagreb, and Bologna; as part of the Animation Block Party, the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, and the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo; and at CalArts, Dartmouth College and VCU.
