Indeed, access to the event is reserved primarily for film professionals and journalists who must be accredited.

On April 26, 2022, the Cannes Film Festival lifted the veil on the jury for its 2022 edition. It is chaired by French actor Vincent Lindon and made up of Rebecca Hall, Deepika Padukone, Noomi Rapace, Jasmine Trinca, Asghar Farhadi , Ladj Ly, Jeff Nichols and finally Joachim Trier. They will have the heavy task of judging the films in competition and awarding the various prizes at the Cannes Film Festival this year, including the prestigious Palme d'Or. As for the jury of the Un Certain regard competition, it is chaired by Valeria Golino and composed of Debra Granik, Joanna Kulig, Benjamin Biolay and finally Edgar Ramirez.

The film that won the Palme d'Or at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival is Titane by French director and screenwriter Julia Ducournau. This is the first time that a woman has won the Palme d'Or alone at the Cannes Film Festival. Jane Campion had previously won the ultimate award for The piano lesson tied with Chen Kaige, who had directed Adieu ma concubine.
