Kim Tucci to receive ‘lifetime achievement award’

ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – The St. Louis International Film Festival will honor Kim Tucci with its lifetime achievement award.

Tucci’s service to the St. Louis region includes investing in the community, raising funds to fight disease, and enabling projects of civic pride. And still, somehow, he finds time to enjoy the movies. While many cinephiles would be content with outings to the local multiplex, Tucci has put his love of film to greater use by serving on the board of Cinema St. Louis for the past decade, chairing the organization since 2008.

He also served for many years as chair of the Missouri Film Commission. His selfless work has both helped build the film industry here in Missouri and allowed Cinema St. Louis to bring some of the world’s best films to St. Louis.

The event is Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Delmar Hall.
