The new thing about the latest film festival is that the event will go on for more than one week. In addition, the announced dates indicate the replacement of the previous schedule, which starts from Wednesday to Sunday. Because of this, a majority of film industry regulators said that latest schedule or timings have made most of the industrial guests to shorten their stay at the Cannes Festival 2019.

For instance, if guests arrive either on Monday or on Tuesday, they have to check out the end of the first weekend instead of staying for a few days of the second week. However, we have to see whether the 72nd Festival will retain the market screening and controversial new press rules introduced during the last year.
