An Oscar win by Julianne Moore would be a box office blessing for a small independent film like 'Still Alice,' said Christine Vachon, the movie's producer and Founder of Killer Films. Vachon said the film industry's transition to tentpole movies is stealing attention away from story driven movies. Vachon is helping teach upcoming producers and directors about changes in the movie industry at Stony Brook University which recently introduced its first ever Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Film. The MFA program focuses on screenwriting, directing, and producing culminating in a feature screenplay, a portfolio of short films including an MFA thesis film or a final producer’s package.
