Opening Ceremony of the 75th Festival de Cannes

Tuesday May 17 at 7:00 pm live on France 2
Actress Virginie Efira served as Master of Ceremony and host of the 75th Edition. She did welcome on the stage of the Palais des Festivals’ Grand Théâtre Lumière the Jury, including Vincent Lindon as Jury President alongside Asghar Farhadi, Rebecca Hall, Ladj Ly, Jeff Nichols, Deepika Padukone, Noomi Rapace, Joachim Trier and Jasmine Trinca.

The opening ceremony was broadcast live today at 7:00 pm on France 2. One of the highlights of the ceremony will be the presence of the 75th Festival’s guest of honor, American actor, director and producer Forest Whitaker, who will receive an honorary Palme d’or at that time.

Vincent Delerm, who celebrates 20 years of career in the Paris-based L’Européen hall these days,  performed on that night and managed to get the entire audience to sing "Que je t'aime "– it’s worth noting that the artist directed the feature Je ne sais pas si c’est tout le monde in 2019 and that he was invited by the Festival in 2021 for a photo coverage that will be released as a portfolio, L’année où le Festival de Cannes avait lieu en juillet (Polka).

The screening of the opening film, Michel Hazanavicius’ Final Cut  followed the special night. The film will be theatrically released in France on that same day.

the surprise of the opening was the transmission of Ukraine President Zelenski's speech, live from Kiev.


As in previous years, audience members will be able to experience the special night in nearly 400 theaters across France – opening ceremony and opening film. This initiative is handled by the Festival de Cannes, along with France Télévisions, the Fédération Nationale des Cinémas Français and the CNC.
