We’re in the midst of awards season, and movies are naturally on the mind of many. But for Kathryn Tucker, film is always at the forefront.

Tucker founded the Arkansas Cinema Society in 2017 along with Little Rock-born film director Jeff Nichols. Since then, the ACS has been uplifting filmmakers in the Natural State through grants, public programs and screenings.

Tucker spoke with Arts Scene ahead of the Saturday, Jan. 11th screening of “Love Them First”, a documentary by Arkansas native Ben Garvin.

The screening, along with a discussion moderated by State Sen. Joyce Elliott, is at 5:30 at Little Rock’s Ron Robinson Theater.
