The Film Society of Lincoln Center has appointed Rose Kuo to be executive director. She replaces Mara Manus, who held the post for the last two years. The Film Society runs the New York Film Festival, which this fall kicks off by premiering the David Fincher-directed The Social Network. Among her new duties, Kuo will oversee the opening of the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, which ads two screens to Lincoln Center in 2011. Kuo has a varied resume. She produced and directed California AIDS Ride ’94, was exec producer of the Sundance winner The Fluffer, and she was a camera assistant to DP Haskell Wexler and assistant to film editor Thelma Schoonmaker.
