Animated Short Film

Driven by creativity and family, Hamira must find her voice to inspire an anti-racist future for all


The Fell We Climb is an animated short film inspired by the real life experiences of black and brown youngsters growing up in Cumbria. +3K Animation have teamed up with Anti Racist Cumbria and Executive Producer, TV’s Nigel Clarke, to bring to life a spell-binding and authentic character driven story to inspire future generations to become anti-racist.




Premiering October 2022 for Black History Month

The Story So Far...

In 2020, Anti Racist Cumbria teamed up with +3K Animation to deliver a series of workshops for young black and brown people to learn animation and explore culture and identity. We quickly realised how passionate the kids were about an anti-racist future with their clear vision for change, and the project organically grew to become as epic as they are. Animated Futures was born.

The Fell We Climb

Packed with a powerful message, this short film has already had such an incredible impact on everyone involved in the process so far. We follow Hamira, a young Cumbrian girl as she navigates her way through racism in its many forms and what inspires her to share her story and how she strives for positive change. We hope this film will not only inspire young people across the world to celebrate their differences but motivate even the coldest of hearts to become actively anti-racist. It’s a truly uplifting experience that we can’t wait to bring to your screens!
