Venice International Film Festival

The granddaddy of all film festivals, Venice was founded in 1932 and has (excepting a few years during World War II) run annually ever since. It retains a grey eminence unshaken by many changes over the years, the prestige of its competitive selections and awards undiminished by the rise of myriad upstart rivals.
