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 76th (2023) Cannes Film Festival will run run 16 - 27 May 2023.
Following the disruption caused in 2020 and 2021 by the pandemic, the 75th (2022) Cannes Film Festival returned to it's normal slot and ran 17-28 May 2022.
