“It was very special to screen Syskon alongside many talented female filmmakers, and so many from SVA! I am appreciative of CASCADIA’s mission and how beautifully executed the entire fest was. Knowing that there are festivals and people out there who are so supportive of us young female filmmakers is incredibly encouraging and inspiring. Thank you for creating a platform for us to come together and share our work.
It was such a pleasure spending time with everyone involved and taking in the beauty of Bellingham. I certainly hope to come back one day! CASCADIA is off to an amazing start and I would love to support the festival for years to come.” – Aurora Alange

“At Doctober (2015) I screened my film, “Swallowed Whole” and had a very lively Q&A discussion. After hearing all the gorey details about how the film was made and what it was about (breaking my back), the audience requested that we screen it AGAIN. I have never had that happen!” – Heidi Kumao
