When and where was the first Cannes Film Festival?

The Cannes Film Festival, also known as Festival de Cannes, was first held in the French Riviera city of Cannes on September 20, 1946. The Venice Film event, which had been overrun by fascist propaganda during World War II, inspired the first idea for the event. A limited group of foreign filmmakers, critics, and business leaders attended the inaugural Cannes Film Festival, which was hosted in the Cannes Casino. Since then, the event has developed into one of the most renowned film festivals in the world, showing fresh and noteworthy films from all over the world.

Who will be recognized at the Cannes Film Festival in 2023?
