Called "the premier presenter of avant-garde animation from around the world" by Hyperallergic, Eyeworks is a curated festival that showcases abstract animation and unconventional character animation, and the programs will also screen in Los Angeles and New York City.

The 2017 Eyeworks Festival at Block Cinema features two programs of short films, including work by Hans Richter, Barbara Hammer, Pat O’Neill, Run Wrake, and others. The two lineups include restored films, works from rising names in the field, and premieres of new works. The programs will be introduced by festival directors Alexander Stewart and Lilli Carré.
