Amongst OVID.tv’s many offerings spanning various genres and styles of film, is a plethora of animated short films. These animated shorts are quite the pivot from the streaming site’s overwhelming abundance of documentary-style content, and are woven into the site’s A-Z collections like little gems.
These animated shorts include stories of spirituality, love, the politics of society, and so much more. They unfold in a time span of anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes—a blink of an eye for those accustomed to longer films with comparable impact. There is a range of various animation styles—each different from one another, each with a different mission to inform.
