In the film, the underground and surface become metaphors of a society undergoing complete transformation. Song's camera pays particular attention to young generations that he believes need to be encouraged to pursue their dreams with concrete dedication and commitment.

"I consider this award as a great encouragement for me and for all the people who worked with me to make Underground Fragrance," Song told Xinhua in an interview after winning the award.

"All of them made big efforts and helped me a lot as it was my first experience as a film director," he highlighted.

Song said he has a long way to go and he is determined to continue to work hard. The thought of this award won at the Venice International Film Festival, he said, will always be helpful for him in facing difficulties.

Song also told Xinhua that he sees the award as a praise of his choice of telling a story which is a reflection of reality.

"I will continue to focus on common people and get the inspiration through the life of those that are around me," he said.

Founded in May 2010 in Cannes, London-based Federo is constituted of individual professional film critics from European and Mediterranean countries. Besides to presenting awards, its aims are forming juries, publishing film reviews, essays, festival reports and organizing conferences.
