This year’s British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards, held on February 18, had a special surprise for native daughter, film producer Low Ser En, as she won the award for Best British Short Animation for her stop-motion short film, “Poles Apart.”

The short, which runs for 12 minutes, is about the effects of climate change on the habitats of a grizzly bear and polar bear, and is the graduation project for one of Britain’s National Film and Television School’s (NFTS) groups of students, a diverse team from different countries. “Poles Apart” beat two other short films to take home the prize.

The award is indeed a prestigious one, since the BAFTAs are acknowledged to be the UK’s equivalent to Hollywood’s Oscar awards, and are given to those who shine in the television in film industry.
