Strategic Partners, the co-pro market put on by the Atlantic Film Festival, has named Killer Films co-founder Christine Vachon (Boys Don’t Cry) as its keynote speaker. Vachon’s address, The Future is Unwritten, will kick off the first full day of the Halifax forum, which this year runs September 16-19.
