Joseph Plateau Honorary Award for Kevin Costner
On 11 October, the American actor Kevin Costner will receive a Joseph Plateau Honorary Award at the Ghent International Film Festival. Costner is coming to Ghent for a concert with his country band Modern West in the Handelsbeurs, an ideal opportunity, the festival thought, to present this award. The prize is the highest award of the festival. Previous luminaries to be presented with the award include Morgan Freeman, Juliette Binoche, Jeanne Moreau, Vanessa Redgrave, Robert Altman and Sydney Pollack.
