The Films in Official Selection

The Competition Line-Up for the 2022 Cannes Film Festival

This is the Festival's main event, and where you will find all the glamour and glory. Films in this section are referred to as being 'in competition' and compete for a variety of awards. The Holy Grail is of course the Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) for best picture, one of the most prestigious awards a film can receive anywhere.
