Venice: A History of Cinematographic Elegance and Passion

The Venice Film Festival is an icon that transcends time. Founded way back in 1932, this festival has illuminated the Venetian lagoon with the glow of the stars and cinematic art. Every year, filmmakers, actors and enthusiasts come together to celebrate creativity and innovation in the film industry. The enchanting scenery of Venice acts as the perfect backdrop for this artistic celebration, adding a unique dimension of beauty and romance.

The Venice Film Festival, affectionately known as the Venice Biennale, is an institution steeped in history and passion for cinema. This extraordinary event has grown from humble beginnings and has evolved into one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world.

An Unexpected Origin

The idea of ​​creating a film festival in Venice did not initially arise from a desire to celebrate cinema. In 1932, during the Mostra d'Arte Cinematografica, the Italian fascist government decided to organize an "International Cinematographic Art Exhibition". The event was meant to serve as a showcase for Italian cinema, but surprisingly it attracted international attention and turned into a film competition, thus inaugurating the first Venice Film Festival.

The First Red Carpet

The first edition of the festival, held in August 1932, took place on the Venice Lido . A red carpet, a symbol of luxury and hospitality, was rolled out for the first time on the occasion of this Venice Film Festival, inaugurating a tradition that now characterizes all major film events.

The first edition of the festival saw the red carpet being rolled out along the Venice Lido , where the event was taking place. That red carpet was not only a scenic addition, but a warm welcome and homage to the high-profile guests who attended the event.

The idea of ​​rolling out a red carpet wasn't just aesthetic, it had profound meaning. The red carpet symbolized the hospitality , grandeur and importance of the event. As attendees walked the red carpet, the street was transformed into a passageway of honor, a catwalk of glamor and splendor.

Since those early days, the red carpet tradition has grown and spread across the globe. Today, it's an unmistakable feature of major events, from film festivals to film awards and high-profile events. The red carpet has become a place where fashion, style and glamor merge with the art of cinema, creating an atmosphere of magic and anticipation.

Who will be at the Venice Film Festival 2023?

Among those present this year at the Venice film festival, the names of Sofia Coppola and Woody Allen, Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain and Adam Driver stand out. One of the important Italian names that stands out is that of Liliana Cavani, the ninety-year-old Modenese director, who will receive the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. A similar recognition will also be awarded to actor Tony Leung Chiu-wai.

Kinèo Award: 21 Years of Cinematographic Excellence

The Kinèo Award, now in its 21st edition, is a tribute to cinematographic mastery and is an official collateral event at the Venice Film Festival's Film Art Exhibition .

It was established at the beginning of 2002 with the specific aim of supporting and enhancing Italian cinema during a period of considerable difficulty, in conjunction with the new delegated provisions of the cinema law.

This mission has guided the organization in creating the recognition of the Kinéo Award (Diamonds for Cinema), aiming to give a voice to cinemagoers. This voice has proved to be fundamental for the cinematographic industry, the operation of theaters and, consequently, for the very vitality of cinematographic art.

In line with its purpose, the event addressed a crucial issue, namely the link between cinema and the business world, through the International Conference "Cinema in the Corporate Universe". In collaboration with advertising agencies, investors, media houses and industry leaders, the event shed light on the challenges and opportunities of film promotion.

This year, the award is further enhanced by the presence of Ana de la Reguera as patroness of the event. The acclaimed Mexican actress, who has captivated both Hollywood and her native country, adds a touch of style and sophistication to the event. Accompanied by award-winning director Michel Franco, Ana de la Reguera is in town to present the competition film "80 Memory," joined by stars like Jessica Chastain and Peter Sarsgaard.
