The animated film by Piotr Chmielewski has won yet another award. An international jury has recognised it as the best short at this year's Youth Film Festival Antwerp.

Youth Film Festival Antwerp is an annual event that brings together young audiences and filmmakers from around the world. The festival provides a platform for showcasing their talents and exchanging experiences. It’s an inspiring celebration of youth cinema that promotes creativity and expressiveness among emerging filmmakers.

This year, the international jury decided to award Crab by Piotr Chmielewski in the short film category.

The film attempts to adopt the perspective of the titular crustacean and discover the worlds it inhabits through its eyes and ears. Animals are mute witnesses of our history; they have accompanied us during humanity’s greatest failures and triumphs. Their lives run parallel to ours – we eat them, use them as tools, and sometimes we simply don’t notice them. But what would happen if we tried to adopt their perspective? What do the events that we all know from history lessons look like when seen through the eyes of animals?
