Joanne Koch came to the Film Society of Lincoln Center as a freelancer in 1971 to program the series Movies in the Parks and quickly became an administrator, moving up to the role of Executive Director in 1977. She spent 47 years creating and shaping what is now Film at Lincoln Center (FLC) and the New York Film Festival (NYFF), serving as FLC's Executive Director from 1977 to 2003 and Project Director of the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center (EBM) through 2008.
We're excited to announce that FLC Luminaries, our video series presented by Netflix which spotlights talent at all levels of the filmmaking process who uplift the art and craft of cinema, has officially returned!

Across a 30-plus-year career, Yoshimitsu Morita (1950–2011) amassed one of the most fascinatingly idiosyncratic and prolific bodies of work in modern Japanese cinema. Film at Lincoln Center announces Yoshimitsu Morita, a retrospective of the Japanese filmmaker’s career, running from December 2-11.
