For the second time in the 74-year history of the Cannes Film Festival, the world's largest film festival, the female filmmaker won the festival's biggest award.

The 74th annual Cannes Film Festival kicked off on July 9 this year. The festival was supposed to take place early last year but was delayed by a year and a half due to the Corona epidemic.

Despite the Corona epidemic, the festival, held in Cannes, France, was attended by showbiz personalities from across the United States, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, including Europe.

The festival, which lasted for about 10 days, screened 56 films, of which 16 were by women filmmakers.

According to the Associated Press (AP), Cannes won the Oscar-winning film award, the Palme d'Or, and for the second time in history, a female filmmaker.
