Only the Academy Award ceremony of the Oscars has beaten the Venice Film
Festival from the point of view of film awards since its first awards ceremony
took place in 1929.
The festival is part
of the famous Biennale di Venezia, one of the most prestigious cultural events
in the world. The award given to the winner of the Venice Film Festival is the Leone d’oro (the Golden Lion) which owes
