Year of Changes, 1947

The following year, in 1947, the name was changed from Le Festival International de Cannes to Festival du film de Cannes, despite it still acting as an international film fest (16 countries were represented that year), and it was held at the Palais des Festivals for the first time. Also, the jury rules were adapted to only include one rep per country. In 1951, another big change to the festival would occur; it would move from Fall to Spring, the season it's been held in ever since.
