New York City-based independent film production company Killer Films was founded by Christine Vachon and Pam Koffler and has produced bold, controversial and acclaimed features since the early 1990’S. Christine Vachon has become a driving force behind some of the most original filmmakers of these last two decades. The New York Times called her the “godmother to the politically committed film” and Interview Magazine said that she is a true “auteur producer.”


The lecture is made possible through the generous support of the Ove W Jorgensen Foundation, with special thanks to Jane and Jay Jorgensen. The series is also co-sponsored by the PRIDE Film Festival and Department of Communication and Culture, in memory of Alex Doty. Special thanks to Danielle McClelland of the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.
