The Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, called “tightly-curated… essential viewing every year” by Cine-File Chicago, will return to REDCAT for its fourth year. Founded in 2010, Eyeworks is an annual festival that showcases abstract animation and unconventional character animation. The Eyeworks Festival at REDCAT will feature two programs of short films, and a screening of work from the 2019 festival guest, Janie Geiser, followed by a discussion with festival curators Alexander Stewart and Lilli Carré. The two curated lineups of short films will include classic and recently restored films, works from rising names in the field, and premieres of new works. Filmmakers in the 2019 festival include Allison Schulnik, Kevin Eskew and Sebastian Buerkner. 

In person: Janie Geiser and additional artists to be announced
