Legendary actor/director Kevin Costner will return to the Cannes Film Festival, presenting the out-of-competition screening of his latest film Horizon, An American Saga, scheduled for Sunday, May 19, 2024.

“I’d like to thank the Festival de Cannes for including my film Horizon, An American Saga in this year’s selection,” says Costner. “It’s been 20 years since I’ve had the pleasure of being on the Croisette. I’ve been waiting for the right time to return and I’m proud to say that this time has come. Horizon, An American Saga is a story that began 35 years ago, and I can’t think of a better place than Cannes to reveal to the world the result of such a wonderful adventure. The French have always supported films and believed deeply in filmmaking. Just as I believe deeply in my film…” 

After his recent successful TV series projects, Hatfields and McCoys and Yellowstone, Costner returns with Horizon, An American Saga, starring Sienna Miller, Sam Worthington and Jena Malone in the lead roles. The film will be released in four episodes over several months.

The talented actor (Bull Durham, The Bodyguard, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, JFK, A Perfect World, and many others) made his directorial debut in 1990 with Dances with Wolves, a humanist chronicle in which he plays an American Civil War soldier close to a Sioux tribe. Dances with Wolves has become a cult feature and was a critical and box-office success, winning seven Oscars including Best Picture. Costner is passionate about painting a portrait of America, including its origins, its flaws and its legends. As exemplified by Dances with Wolves, the Western has become his preferred genre for expressing his political commitment to democracy and the environment.
