International Cannes Film Festival
May 17-28, 2022

As the world slowly begins to settle back, we are seeing the emergence of rescheduled prestigious events that have been missed during Covid-19. France’s prominent film festival, Cannes Film Festival will be celebrating its 75th year. The annual international festival is set to take place from May 17-28th. After the festival’s cancellation in 2020 and the presence of Covid-19, Cannes will be having an exciting return this year. This May the Cannes will be coming back with extraordinary films, and no other than talented actor Vincent Lindon who previously won Best Actor in 2015 will be the Cannes Jury lead.

Featured: Vincent Lindon, Jasmine Trinca, Noomi Rapace, Joachim Trier, Asghar Farhadi, Rebecca Hall, Deepika Padukone, Jeff Nichols and Ladj Ly

Gifted French actor Vincent Lindon will be the president of the Jury of the 75th annual Cannes Film Festival, along with notable jury members including Deepika Padukone and Jeff Nichols. Together with eight jury members, Lindon will present the Palme d’Or to one of the 21 films in competition on Saturday, May 28, during the closing ceremony, to be broadcast live by France Télévisions and Brut.  “With my Jury, we will strive to take the best possible care of the films of the future, all of which carry the same secret hope of courage, loyalty, and freedom, with a mission to move the greatest number of women and men by speaking to them of their common wounds and joys. Culture helps the human soul to rise and hope for tomorrow.” – Vincent Lindon, Jury President.
