Cannes 2022: Check out the full lineup led by David Cronenberg and Claire Denis


Now that the American Academy Awards are behind us, the film industry can breathe a sigh of relief and get ready to enjoy a new year of movies, with the Cannes Film Festival annually marking an exciting time for new releases. This year is no different, with a large bulk of the full lineup having been announced in a live press conference, revealing films from the likes of David Cronenberg, Hirokazu Koreeda, George Miller, Claire Denis, Kelly Reichardt and Park Chan-wook. 

As well as highly anticipated arthouse movies, the likes of the Tom Cruise sequel Top Gun: Maverick has also been announced for the festival along with the Baz Luhrmann Elvis Presley biopic, Elvis, starring Austin Butler and Tom Hanks.

Other than these major announcements, the other surprising omission was the lack of revelation for who will be jury president, with the festival still yet to reveal the pivotal name. 

Whilst we await the arrival of the festival on May 17th, check out the full lineup for the Cannes Film Festival 2022, below.
