Eyeworks is an invitational festival focusing on abstract animation and unconventional character animation. Festival programs showcase outstanding experimental animation of all sorts: classic films, new animations and rare or overlooked works. The Eyeworks festival was founded in 2010 and is held annually in Chicago, with additional curated programs presented in Chicago and other cities throughout the year.

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

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

Festival directors: Alexander Stewart and Lilli Carré

The 2013 Eyeworks Festival is sponsored by the Canyon Cinema Foundation & the Video Data Bank.
