Impactful storytelling 

Allegorical Alchemy offers film-based solutions for knowledge translation challenges relating to health, health research, and social issues, helping to ensure that information is shared with the target audience.


Allegorical Alchemy blends research and filmmaking expertise to create short thought-provoking and emotive portrait films and interactive documentaries.

Portrait films contain key messages targeted to a specific audience, and told from the perspective of an individual. They aim to catalyze dialogue between stakeholder groups, an important step in producing meaningful change. 

Interactive documentaries allow the community to explore a topic in more detail by showing different viewpoints on a subject. They are particularly useful for understanding the patient experience.

The process for creating the films is highly collaborative, recognizing the importance of meaningful engagement with stakeholders and storytellers.
