ANKER JOINS CALARTS AS DEAN.

Byline: Daily News

SANTA CLARITA - Steve Anker, former director of the San Fernando Cinematheque and artistic director of the Foundation for Art in Cinema, has been named dean of the California Institute of the Arts School of Film/Video.

Anker, who holds an MFA in filmmaking and film history from Columbia University, served for 18 years as professor of film at the San Francisco Art Institute. As director of the San Francisco Cinematheque, Anker oversaw one of the most-respected showcases of experimental film and video in the world, presenting more than 75 programs a year.

``We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Steve Anker's breadth and experience,'' said CalArts President Steven D. Levine. ``Steve is in an especially strong position to strengthen what our students learn about taking their films into the world.''

Anker said he is thrilled to be at CalArts and looks forward to learning more about the institute and the School of Film/Video.

``I know CalArts already has a major reputation in the world, and I believe I can broaden and intensify it while raising the school's already high standards even higher,'' he said.
