From the Director, Jen Ray:
"The CASCADIA Dance & Cinema Festival grew out of a desire to connect those involved & interested in the arts & industries of Dance & Cinema.  These art forms have incredible potential to communicate through movement & not only move viewers emotionally, but amplify & clarify each other  when intelligently combined. Dance and Film, through their science & essence,  beautifully enable & and elevate each other. This Festival is focused on celebrating & sharing a high calibre & diverse range of programming."

Audience Choice - every film is scored between 0 and 10 by audience members at the screening
