Film Society of Lincoln Center Announces Additions, Including Editorial Director and Film Comment Editor

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has today announced the addition of two new members to its growing staff, with Michael
Koresky stepping in as the organization’s new Editorial Director and Nicolas Rapold transitioning from Interim Editor to Editor of Film Comment.

Koresky’s position is a newly created one; in it, he will oversee planning, strategy and development of all editorial
content for the organization, as well as for Film
Comment and its platforms. Koresky is a writer and editor who recently served as the Director of Publications and Marketing for the new Metrograph Theater in downtown Manhattan. Previously, he worked for a decade at the Criterion Collection, where he was the sole Staff Writer and, before that, its Managing Editor.

“Michael Koresky has brought
a distinct voice and an editorial eye to his various roles at the Criterion
Collection, Metrograph, and Reverse Shot, while also engaging amazing writers
as contributors,” said FSLC Deputy Director and Co-Publisher of Film Comment Eugene Hernandez. “We know
he will bring the same rigor and commitment to his role at the Film Society.
He’s devoted to reassessing the organization’s editorial mission, rethinking
everything it publishes and where it publishes it.”
Koresky will be joined by Rapold, who now moves into the role of Editor of Film Comment. Rapold has served at Interim Editor since January, and has been a member of the Film Comment team since 2005, previously holding the position of Senior Editor.

Hernandez added, “We’re also investing in our
existing team by elevating Nicolas Rapold to the role of Editor. He has been a
key member of Film Comment for more than
a decade, and, alongside Laura Kern and Violet Lucca, brings experience,
knowledge, and history — a link to the magazine’s past and a deep understanding
of its mission. That’s the foundation we need for everything we’re trying to
do.”

First up for the pair? The launch of a brand new Film Comment app.
