Sadly, Robert Koehler, the Film Society of Lincoln Center's recently appointed Director of Cinematheque programming, is resigning to focus on family health matters. He will be returning to Los Angeles; Koehler requests privacy for his family. His duties will be fulfilled by programmer and critic Dennis Lim, who will now oversee the year-round retrospectives, festivals and screening series, reporting to Kent Jones, who replaced outgoing Nyff director Richard Pena and supervises all Fslc programming. The Film Society's exec director Rose Kuo states: "Bob brought a lot of fresh new ideas and innovation to the Film Society during his tenure and we are sorry to see him go.  We wish him and his family well and send him our support during this challenging time. We will continue to move forward in a new direction while maintaining our commitment to excellence with the appointment of Dennis Lim as the new Director of Cinematheque Programming. »
