NOV. 6: Eyeworks Festival in Chicago

If you find yourself anywhere near Chicago this Saturday, make sure to check out the inaugural edition of the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, a one-day event featuring “abstract animation and unconventional character animation.”

The event, organized by Lilli Carré and Alexander Stewart, takes place at DePaul’s CDM Theater (247 S. State Street, basement level; Jackson stop, Red Line). There are two film programs–”classic shorts” which features experimental animation work from the 70′s-90′s, and “new shorts,” which is kind of self-explanatory. The trailer above gives a taste of what they’re showing. The third program will be a screening of animated films by animation hotshot David OReilly who will also be attending the festival. Admission is a super-bargain: $5 for each program, or $12 for the entire day. More details at EyeworksFestival.com.
