'Our Peckham: Foodbank and the Fidget Spinner' wins Best Animation

Congratulations to Bell Gardens Animation Club & Rainbow Collective, from London, England, whose stop-motion animation Our Peckham: Foodbank and The Fidget Spinner has been named Best Animation (Sponsored by Disney) at the Into Film Awards 2019. Their award was presented by actors Bill Nighy and Malachi Kirby.

Made by 11 young people from Peckham, Our Peckham: Foodbank and The Fidget Spinner depicts the realities of having to rely on a foodbank to get by, as a young boy's wish for a fidget spinner to help him fit in comes up against his father's need to save what little money they have.

We were thinking about how poverty isn't always seen, so we decided to do a film about foodbanks. We don't think people should be ashamed to use them because you shouldn't be ashamed of getting help.

Ben, young filmmaker from Peckham, London

Our Peckham was also the winner of the Audience Choice Award - making it the first film to ever win multiple Into Film Awards!
