Founded in 2007, The Blender Institute is a branch of the Foundation that focuses on developing 3D animated films made entirely with this program. So far they’ve produced 12 open project short videos and are working towards an official full-length feature film; some these have made our list!

Independent artists have used Blender to make short films that are both award-winning and critically acclaimed. The use of this open source software is helping push the boundaries in film production, bringing more diversity into an industry which until now relied heavily upon expensive hardware tools like 3D animation packages from companies such as Sony Pictures Animation or Disney Feature Animation Studios.
