Jamie Lee Curtis will be honored during the 78th Venice International Film Festival

Los Angeles- Jamie Lee Curtis will be honored with the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 78th Venice international Film Festival.

Curtis, who has been an inspiration in film for a lengthy period of time will receive the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement for her contribution on and off the set. Curtis has inspired many people with breathing life into memorable characters, as well as bringing awareness to Aids.

The announcement and recognition will be given prior to her new film screening Halloween Kills. “I am incredibly humbled to be honored in this way by the Venice International Film Festival,” Jamie Lee Curtis said.

“It seems impossible to me that I’ve been in this industry long enough to be receiving ‘Lifetime Achievement’ recognition, and to have it happen now, with Halloween Kills, is particularly meaningful to me. Halloween—and my partnership with Laurie Strode—launched and sustained my career, and to have these films evolve into a new franchise that is beloved by audiences around the world was, and remains, a gift. Italian Cinema has always honored and heralded the genre that gave me my career, so I couldn’t be more proud and happy to accept this award from the Venice International Film Festival on behalf of Laurie and all the courageous heroines of the world who stand tall in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles and refuse to yield.”
