4:13 to Katowice, a short film directed by Andrzej Stopa and produced by East Pictures, won the 3D category at the ninth BeFilm Underground Film Festival in the United States. Held in New York at the end of April, BeFilm is an independent film festival that attracts a lot of attention in the U.S. movie industry, especially on the East Coast.

The festival is only open to shorts, which are divided into narratives, documentaries, animated movies and 3D. BeFilm organizers and judges have discovered quite a few talents to date and many movies first shown at BeFilm were subsequently nominated for the Academy Award and shown at international film festivals in Cannes, Venice, Berlin and more.

4:13 to Katowice is a 25-minute action movie revolving around a vigilante who is out to kill a man. Artur (Robert Więckiewicz, pictured) is having a hard time coming to terms with a tragedy that happened to someone he loved. Seeking revenge, he concocts a plan to help him deal with his pain. He will board a train in Wrocław at 4:13, kill a man at 6:02, get off the train in Katowice at 6:51, and smile for the first time in two years. But will his plan pan out?

Back in Poland, the movie was well received by critics, qualifying for a review of Polish independent cinema at the 37th Polish Film Festival in Gdynia and a Polish film competition at the 52nd Cracow Film Festival.
