EVANSTON, Ill. —- The Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University hosts the fourth annual Chicago screening of the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Block Cinema, 40 Arts Circle Drive, on the Evanston Campus.

The 2018 Eyeworks Festival, called "essential viewing" by Cine-File, showcases outstanding experimental animation of all kinds, with a focus on abstract animation and unconventional animation. The aim of Eyeworks is to present works that engage the enormous potential inherent in the art form of animation. Co-curated by festival directors Alexander Stewart and Lilli Carré, the festival will feature two one-hour programs of short films that include classic and recently restored films and new work by rising names in the field shown on 16mm and video.

"Eyeworks is one of the annual events I look forward to most. Alexander and Lilli are some of the most talented programmers I know," said Justin Lintelman, Block Museum of Art, associate film programmer.

"Each year the Festival offers ambitious and eclectic programs of mesmerizing and often hard-to-find animated works from throughout the history of film and from a variety of artistic modes and mediums that often challenges my understanding of animation. Presenting this program to Northwestern's campus gives students an opportunity to see works of animated media art that will open their minds and challenge their own work within their respective disciplines," Lintelman said.

Please note: The Eyeworks Festival programs contain adult themes and adult content.
