In the 2020 edition the fanheart3 awards jury also awarded a special mention to The Metamovie Presents: Alien Rescue, directed by Jason Moore. This work, in fact, gives the user not only the chance to join the story, but also the possibility to become its co-creator. It also opens up surprising interactive possibilities as the “hero”, allowing the user to be the main character of the story and to decide what kind of relationship they want to have with the others.
The Golden Clip and the Silver Ship for best OTP were assigned to a title in a selection of 15 films chosen by a team of experts on fan culture and participatory dynamics in the following sections: Venezia77 In Competition, Out of Competition, Orizzonti, Giornate degli Autori, Settimana della Critica.
The VR Fan Experience was assigned to one out of 10 experiences in VR selected among those presented at VeniceVR Expanded.
Winners of Fanheart3 Awards were announced on Saturday, September 12, on the closing day of the Venice Film Festival at Fondazione Ente dello Spettacolo event.
