“The editorial line that the jury followed in choosing the award winners,” explains Laura Delli Colli, president of the SNGCI (National Union of Film Journalists), which is tasked with giving out the prizes, “was one that involved being open to a form of talent steeped in research. This talent is innovative in many cases, and even edgy, when it comes to a tradition that still tends to depict memories and current events through a cinematic filter, in addition to journalistic current affairs, all the while paying particular attention to society and customs.”

Among the other accolades, we should highlight the Special Awards given to Franca: Chaos and Creation [+see also:
