When is the next festival?
The Cannes Film Festival traditionally runs for 12 days during May each year. Historically, the 12-day slot straddled Wednesday through Sunday-week. In 2018 it was announced that all future festivals will run Tuesday-Saturday. This move was widely believed to be an effort to bolster last weekend by having the closing ceremony on the Saturday night (rather than Sunday, when most people had already gone home).
The dates for the 75th (2022) Cannes Film Festival have not been announced yet, but it is expected to run 10-21 May 2022.
The 74th (2021) Cannes Film Festival was scheduled to run 11 - 22 May 2021. However, due to the pandemic restrictions in France in the first half of 2021, the festival was delayed for a couple of months and ran 6-17 July 2021.
