6.8.1932: First Venice film festivals
The Venice film festivals took place for the first time at the city's Lido cinema, under the organisation of the municipal council. Earl Volpi, the Domprobst of San Marco, started them within the framework of his tourism investments. Because of the great public interest, they continued to be held annually. The best films of each year are presented with the prestigious Golden Lion . Along with Berlin and Cannes, the Venice festivals are among the most important film events in Europe.
