Film Society of Lincoln Center Appoints Florence Almozini as Senior Programmer

The Film Society of
Lincoln Center has announced the appointment of Florence
Almozini to the post of Senior Programmer, and Jake Perlin and Rachael
Rakes as Programmers at Large. The new team will work alongside Dennis
Lim, Director of Programming, on year-round festivals and series, sneak
previews, premieres, and special events throughout the year.

“We are thrilled–and extremely fortunate–to have the opportunity to work
with a programmer of Florence Almozini’s caliber,” said Lim. “She’s a
veteran of New York film culture with a résumé that speaks for itself, a
world-class film lover who has mastered the subtle art of film
programming. As someone who has discovered countless films and
filmmakers thanks to her, I know that she has a real gift not just for
finding important work but also for presenting it to audiences in a
meaningful context.”

Almozini will create and execute
cinematheque programs as well as book new releases, in collaboration
with Lim. She previously held the position of founding curator and
Artistic Director of BAMcinématek in Brooklyn.

Jake Perlin will work on
several series throughout the year as Programmer at Large, and will also
co-program a 2015 retrospective of master filmmaker Raúl Ruiz. From 2003 to 2011, he was the Associate Film
Curator at BAMcinématek and in 2013, co-programmed the New Yawk New Wave
series with Bruce Goldstein at Film Forum.

Rachael Rakes will continue to co-program the annual Art of the Real
series and also focus on events and series
specifically connecting the worlds of art and writing with that of
cinema. She has worked as a programmer and curator for the past 13
years, most recently as Assistant Curator of Film at the Museum of the
Moving Image.

“We are also delighted to extend our relationships
with Jake Perlin and Rachael Rakes, who have been essential
collaborators on some of our most ambitious recent programs,” said Lim. “I think of
the Film Society’s year-round offerings as an ongoing conversation with
our audience about what truly matters in cinema, old and new, and with
this dynamic programming team in place, I fully expect that conversation
to evolve in very interesting and exciting ways.”
