Speaking about the opportunity of being a member of the Orizzonti jury at the Venice International Film Festival, Fien Troch said, "It's a great honour to be part of the Orizzonti jury at Venice, one of the biggest festivals in the world. Having the world premiere of HOME there last year and then winning Best Director was a wonderful opportunity. So to come back this year to award the work of other filmmakers will undoubtedly be an invaluable experience."
