When you use storytelling in your animation film, you create engaging and impactful content. Animation can be a great tool to tell stories that are difficult or sensitive to share. It can also provide anonymity for anyone who might not otherwise be able to share their story. The following are examples of animation storytelling films that are powerful and engaging.

Estelle’s story shares one woman’s horrific experience with war and conflict. Rather than taking a literal approach, this animation focus on the sentiment and feelings behind her story. This creates context for the audience to relate and engage with her story.
