"Quando parliamo di prodotti 'da fan' non stiamo riducendo automaticamente il livello qualitativo delle produzioni vincitrici, definendole 'per le masse'. Anzi, vogliamo evidenziare qualcosa in più che questi film hanno, oltre al loro valore artistico. Molti di questi film presentano delle caratteristiche che potrebbero farli notare anche oltre i confini dei Festival e del circuito cinefilo e trasformarli in piccoli (o grandi) cult, in grado di influenzare non solamente la successiva produzione cinematografica (come accaduto con la trilogia de Il Signore degli Anelli), ma anche la cultura a 360 gradi e, con essa, la società e le situazioni sociali che ogni giorno ci ritroviamo ad affrontare"
"When we talk about “movies for fans” we are not reducing the inner quality of these movies, nor are we simply calling them “mainstream”. On the contrary, we want to emphasize that these movies have something more, a potential, which goes beyond even their artistic value. Some of these movies could be noticed beyond film festivals and the cinephile niche. Their characteristics transform them into potential cult movies and therefore allow them not only to influence the cinematographic production for years to come, but also to do something that beautiful but less fan-oriented films are unable to realize: to have a 360° impact on our culture and hopefully move younger people (and not only) to a better awareness of our society and of the challenges it’s facing."
