In awarding the prize to Kaplanoglu, jury president Tommy Lee Jones said, "We were impressed by this movie's appreciation of the common understanding among all people through a shared mythic experience." He then shared his own thoughts on the 30th TIFF, praising his fellow jury members, calling them "very bright filmmakers and thoughtful people." He also noted they had a very international mix, saying, "We speak five different languages and needed five different interpreters…it felt like the United Nations! But we're more humorous than the United Nations." Jones also laid out his final feelings about TIFF and the jury's final selections: "Festivals, at their best, are meant to relieve filmmakers and audiences from strict commercial demands," and added, "As filmmakers, we have not been born and raised to waste your time, we have been born to improve it -- and I know that I can speak for this jury when I say we remain your humble and hopeful servants."
