This year’s line-up includes feature-length and short documentaries, narratives and animated films that will take audiences around the globe with issues and questions that will stir thoughtful discussion. Among the short films selected this year is a film by 2016 CASCADIA director More Raca. Her film, “Ajo”, which was up for an Oscar nomination this year, follows a young woman who makes a courageous decision to escape an early marriage arranged by her father.
The Festival’s Indigenous Film Program will include the short film “OchiSkwaCho” directed by Jules Koostachin—a three-time returning CASCADIA director and a band member of Attawapiskat First Nation.
A highlight of this year’s festival will be an evening with Academy Award-winning and four-time Oscar-nominated director Freida Lee Mock. Mock played a significant role in retaining the documentary film category in the Academy Awards.
CASCADIA will host a special event with Mock on Friday, April 12 at the Mount Baker Theatre.
