Webster Film Series brings indie film producer Christine Vachon to the Moore Auditorium for a discussion on producing and filmmaking.

From the Film Series site:

Venerable Indie producer Christine Vachon will discuss her lengthy career in American Independent Cinema in an intimate afternoon gathering in the Webster University Moore Auditorium. Vachon, who’s filmography is something like a must-see list of indie hits, has produced dozens of films including Todd Haynes’ Far From Heaven, Kimberly Pierce’s Boys Don’t Cry, Todd Solondz’s Happiness, and Larry Clark’s Kids. In addition to addressing the ins and outs of the producer’s trade, Vachon will discuss her experiences working with some of the most celebrated directors of the last three decades (Robert Altman, John Waters, Ruba Nadda, John Cameron Mitchell, et al). Vachon is also the author of two acclaimed books about producing, A Killer Life and Shooting To Kill. Her production company, Killer Films, has a steady slate of films in production and release.

 

WHEN: 1pm Friday, February 25, 2011
WHERE: Moore Auditorium, Webster University, 470 E Lockwood Ave
COST: FREE

Vachon will also lead a Q & A after the screening of Hedwig and the Angry Inch later that evening.

Visit the Webster Film Series to see the entire schedule including Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Far From Heaven, and Boys Don't Cry showtimes.
