AFI taps Mandel to lead school

The American Film Institute has named alumnus Robert Mandel dean of the AFI Conservatory, the organization said Tuesday. Mandel, a director whose credits include F/X, School Ties, Big Shots and The Substitute, will fill the position Sam Grogg vacated in June. "First, I want to cement AFI's reputation for being the finest film school in the country," said Mandel, who graduated from AFI in 1979. "I'm so impressed by how far it has come since I've been there."
