Stony Brook Southampton Granted MFA Film Accreditation

Film poster for "Still Alice," which I like because it's got our ocean in it. Plus we get to stretch and brush up on our Spanish. Congrats to Stony Brook Southampton and Killer Films for working on this multi-award nominated film.

Huge congrats to Stony Brook Southampton and its state recognition on getting the Film MFA Degree program started! The program, directed by Killer Films’ Christine Vachon, is the first in the SUNY system. Lest you need reminding of who the fantastic Ms. Vachon is, she’s the groundbreaking producer behind such indy hits as Academy Award winner “Boys Don’t Cry,” “Far From Heaven,” “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Happiness,” “Kill Your Darlings” and HBO’s “Mildred Pierce,” which won five Emmys, a Golden Globe and a SAG Award. I heart every single film of hers that I’ve ever seen. Killer, and the film students of Stony Brook Southampton, were also involved in the making of multi-award-nominated (and sure to win several) “Still Alice.” That film stars Montauk resident Julianne Moore, who just won a Golden Globe for her performance in the movie, and Amagansett resident Alec Baldwin.
