FilmColumbia 2023 honors the visionary producers and founders of Killer Films, Christine Vachon and Pam Koffler. Camp and I Shot Andy Warhol are just a few of the films Vachon and Koffler have produced over the decades.

Writer/director Todd Graff based his upstate fictionalization of his own experiences at Stagedoor Manor, a theater summer camp for teenagers in the Catskills. This charming and affecting mockumentary about kids who love musicals and the stage, the counselors who guide them, and the director who must balance the books, also boasts a rare film appearance by the late great master of the American musical, Stephen Sondheim himself. In 2003 The New York Times wrote, “…its spark of enthusiasm is so infectious that you have to love it for its faults.”
