Paddington 2 has been voted for by you, our club members, and readers of First News as our Family Film of the Year (in association with First News, sponsored by CMS) at the Into Film Awards 2018.

Paddington 2 is the charming, hilarious sequel to 2014's Paddington, the film which gave the gentle Peruvian bear a new lease of life, delighting a whole new generation of audiences, both young and old. In fact, we loved Paddington 2 so much that we had it as our opening film at this year's Into Film Festival, and clearly we're not the only ones, because of the 12 films in the Into Film Awards poll on First News, Paddington 2 garnered roughly a third of all the votes cast, beating Wonder and Beauty and the Beast into second and third place.

A big thank you to everyone who voted. Treat yourselves to a marmalade sandwich!
