On Friday, May 31, who better to get back in the Power Player groove with than producer Christine Vachon of New York City’s very own Killer Films. With too many powerhouse and award-winning projects to name them all, let’s just start with a few, including indie classic Boys Don’t Cry, recent festival favorite Kill Your Darlings, and the TV miniseries Mildred Pierce.
Vachon is a wealth of knowledge. She wrote the book Shooting to Kill: How an Independent Producer Blasts Through Barriers to Make Movies that Matter. Don’t miss this opportunity to sit down with her and learn what it takes to make it the tough world of independent film and play with the big boys in Hollywood while maintaining a high standard for craftsmanship and subject matter.
