This time the Cannes Film Festival will be held at the right time..
Cannes Film Festival- May 17-28

France : What to Expect at Major International Film Festivals in 2022. After a bullish 2021 edition that saw Julia Ducournau’s “Titane” win the Golden Palm from a jury presided over by Spike Lee, Cannes is gearing up for another big year in 2022 to mark the festival’s 75th anniversary. Cannes chief Thierry Fremaux is already pursuing some high profile U.S. titles and talent, and is also still hoping to bring Netflix back to the festival, which could happen if the streamer accepts to world premiere its movies outside of the competition roster. A sign of their friendly relationship, Netflix recently partnered with Fremaux’s Lumiere Institute in Lyon to host a week of gala premieres. In 2021, the festival’s selection was super-sized with, among other things, a Cannes Premiere section (that might not be back in 2022, according to an insider).

What might stick for 2022 are the beach screenings hosted as part of the Cinema de la Plage lineup. Cannes has also changed its main media sponsors for the first time in 28 years and will be working with France Televisions and the platform Brut instead of Canal Plus Group starting in 2022. So far, the festival hasn’t set up a contingency plan in the summer or fall and is prepping for a May edition as normal, roughly three weeks after France’s presidential election.
