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. The 2018 Eyeworks Festival at Block Cinema features two programs of short films, including restorations, works from rising names in the field, and premieres of new works, and will also screen in Los Angeles and New York City. The programs will be introduced by festival directors Alexander Stewart and Lilli Carré.
