What dates for the 2022 Cannes Film Festival?
The Cannes Film Festival 2022 resumes its usual dates after having had to organize its last edition at the beginning of the summer. The 75th edition of the event takes place from May 17 to May 28, 2022, dates favored by the organizers of the event for many years.
For its 75th edition, the Cannes Film Festival has decided to highlight the film Truman Show with Jim Carrey on its poster. In a press release, the organizers specified: "The Cannes Film Festival takes note of the end of a world to apprehend it again, specified the organizers in the press release which accompanied the revelation of this poster. Climate crisis , humanitarian disasters, armed conflicts: there are many reasons for concern. As in 1939 and then in 1946, Cannes reaffirms its conviction that art and cinema are places of reflection and contribute to the reinvention of the world."

But film lovers aged 18 to 28 can also hope to discover films screened on the Croisette thanks to the "Three days in Cannes" pass. We detail how to register and get accredited in detail below:
