Cannes Film Festival 2022 Special Screenings and Midnight Screenings
On April 26, 2022, the Cannes Film Festival lifted the veil on the 2022 jury. 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 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.
We don't yet know which film will win the Palme d'Or for this 2022 edition. The last supreme award granted by the Cannes Film Festival last year is Titane by French director and screenwriter Julia Ducournau. It was the first time that a woman won, alone, a Palme d'Or 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.
