VACHON HONORED

VACHON HONORED

This month marks the 10-year anniversary of Killer Films, the production company Christine Vachon co-founded with partner Pam Koffler. (Partner Katie Roumel joined the pair in 2001). But even before Killer was formed, Vachon made her reputation producing her Brown University friend Todd Haynes’ 1991 Sundance winner “Poison,” and the 30-odd films she’s produced since are a testament to her longevity, which is just one reason she has earned her colleagues’ respect.

Killer’s resume includes a slate of films with gay themes (“Velvet Goldmine,” “Camp”) and hot-button topics (pedophilia in “Happiness”) that have entered the mainstream to become Oscar contenders (“Far From Heaven”) and even winners (Hilary Swank for “Boys Don’t Cry”). She has attracted top talent, including box office draw Julianne Moore, which, combined with Killer’s biggest low-budget hit “One Hour Photo” (which grossed nearly $32 million domestically), have made her a force with which to be reckoned.

Congrats Christine!
