A brilliant American producer with some one hundred films to her credit and a leading light in the independent film industry, Christine Vachon throws out the rule book. Aside from her major accomplishments—including Kids (1995), Boys Don't Cry (1999), Far From Heaven (2002), and Still Alice (2014)—Vachon is known for her desire to explore uncharted territory. With uncompromising authenticity, she calls on undiscovered talents to help her tell stories that are sometimes provocative, sometimes disturbing, but never boring.
This encounter between Christine Vachon and Guy Maddin, the eccentric Canadian director, promises to be both thought-provoking and inspiring. The evening will conclude with the screening of a medium-length film by Vachon, whose title will be revealed at the last minute.
Please note that the conference will be held in English.
This event will be filmed, and webcast on a future date. A photographer will also be onsite.
