Dancecineman founder/director Jen Ray says, “Growing up in Vancouver, it was very much a vibrant city for both film and dance, but these communities existed separately. Dancinema aims to connect these two communities through dance film screenings and education.” The Cascadia Dance & Cinema Festival is a chance “to take in and celebrate some of this year’s best dance films, as well as learn more from some of the filmmakers themselves.”
