The 36th Cannes Film Festival was held from 7 to 19 May 1983. The Palme d'Or went to the Narayama Bushiko by Shōhei Imamura.[4][5]

In 1983, the new building for the main events of the festival, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, was inaugurated.[6] Innitially many described it as "a hideous concrete blockhouse", nicknaming it The Bunker.[7] The festival opened with The King of Comedy, directed by Martin Scorsese[8][9] and closed with WarGames, directed by John Badham.[10][11]
