The Cannes Film Festival started in 1947 by, Jean Zay, Minister for Education and Fine Arts, who was keen to establish an international cultural event in France to rival the Venice Film Festival.” This festival received international recognition for the films and celebrities in the mid 1950s. The first time the festival top award, Palme d’or, went to the film Marty. Today the film festival recognizes short and medium length films (Caméra d’Or), student films (Cinéfondation), best first film presentation (Un Certain Regard), and best film (Palme d’or).
