Two Sisters is a 1991 animated short by Caroline Leaf, produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

Made using the drawn on film animation technique, the film was etched by Leaf directly onto tinted 70 mm film. The film tells the story of two sisters who live a self-contained existence until the arrival of a stranger throws their ordered life into chaos.[1] It took Leaf a year and half to make the film.[2] Awards for Two Sisters include the Grand Prize of the Festival - Award for Best Story from the Ottawa International Animation Festival and the Best Film Award - Category: Fiction, Short Film, at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival.[3]
