A film filmed mainly in Enfield won an Academy Award.

The Phone Call received the award for best short film at the Oscars on Sunday night.

It was shot largely in Claverings Industrial Estate, Edmonton, in March 2013.

The film, by Mat Kirkby and James Lucas, tells the story of a woman working for a crisis centre helpline who receives a call from a suicidal older man. The encounter changes the lives of all of those involved in the call.

The film stars Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins as the call centre worker Heather, and previous Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent as caller Stan.

Enfield Council leader Councillor Doug Taylor said: “I’m absolutely thrilled that The Phone Call won an Oscar and we’re terribly excited that we were able to contribute towards The Phone Call’s success in our own small way.

“We’d like to congratulate the film makers, stars and production company on their fabulous win.

“This Oscar win shows that Enfield is an ideal location for shooting films, and we’ve got a long track record in working with film and television companies because of this.”
